Our Undergraduates are Active

To study English or Philosophy is to get out, interact with the world, participate in the progress of the discipline. Our undergraduates organize. They read their essays, fiction and poetry in public, and come to our reading series to listen to respected and well-known authors read their work. They study in Rome, London, Ireland and Chile. They win awards and fellowships. They go on to graduate school.

With the Department of English and Philosophy, you get the dedication of faculty members who share their passion for their work. You can participate in student organizations. You can study abroad. Most importantly, you get to experience all the ways the written word can come alive.

For a glimpse of what our department has to offer beyond the classroom, see Student Resources.
