The Department of English

The Department of English offers courses in writing, language, and literature. The study of English forms a cornerstone of a liberal arts education and will help you:

  • Become an adaptable thinker, confident in your ability to determine your own path
  • Learn to analyze, express, and understand information at a time when information literacy is an essential skill
  • Know how to bring innovation and creativity to the workplace
  • Acquire skills that employers are searching for, like critical thinking, creativity and written/verbal communication

Because these skills are transferable to dozens of fields, earning a degree in English not only lets you explore your interests in writing, language, and literature, but will also give you extraordinary career flexibility.

English at FHSU: Forward Thinking. World Ready.

Whether you focus your coursework on literature, teaching, or writing, studying English gives you the range of skills you'll need to thrive in a career…and in life.

Find your passion by planning service-learning projects, working on the award-winning student-run journal Lines from the Middle of Nowhere, or tutoring in the Writing Center. Let our outstanding faculty members guide your exploration of literature and yourself during your time at FHSU.

Take your studies in English to a deeper level with one of two MA programs. While some students take courses during the typical school year, an innovative summer MA program also meets the needs of in-service teachers, librarians, and any others who have the desire to earn an MA through face-to-face classes but who don't have the time for a year-round program.
