What you’ll do in the English/Literary, Textual, and Cultural Studies track

In an information-based, global society, the most valuable skills are reading, writing, and critical thinking, and the most valuable knowledge is knowledge of culture and language.

In the English Studies program, you’ll develop these skills and knowledge with the help of award-winning faculty known around the world for superb teaching and innovative approaches to literature, language, critical thinking, and writing.

By specializing in Literary, Textual, and Cultural Studies, you’ll gain expertise in the history, meaning, function, and aesthetics of literary texts from around the world and across time. As you learn to critically analyze poetry, plays, novels, short stories, and digital texts, you’ll also come to understand how race, gender, sexual orientation, and identity affect our interactions with both traditional and nontraditional literature.
