The Department of English is notable for the breadth of its course offerings and for the depth of its creative and scholarly investigations. Our courses cover a wide range of topics in literature, film, and culture, with an emphasis on close reading. Close reading, sustained and detailed attention to a text, is central to study in the department.  

We invite you to learn more about our faculty and their teaching and research interests.  Our website also provides extensive information about the major, prizes and awards offered by the department, and our special events. You are also welcome to read more about our unique history, to peruse a catalog of departmental courses offered other semesters, and learn more about the learning goals we set forth for our majors..

Current majors should go here to access departmental resources, and prospective majors should click here for more information on getting started in the department.

 

Questions regarding the department and its policies should be directed to Prof. Peter Berek, who is the Department Chair for AY 2013-2014. Questions regarding courses and the major should be directed to Prof. Judith Frank, the Director of Studies.
