Professor assists student in Trinity Sweatshirt while her classmates add input Poems, memoirs, movies, novels, fairy tales, speeches, ads, stories, TV shows, laws, contracts, bumper stickers: all are texts. Our English program acquaints students with great texts, from the works of Chaucer to contemporary writing and film, and provides students with skills for reading, understanding, analyzing, discussing, creating, editing, advocating and evaluating.

Our students organize and participate in spoken-word events such as “Speakin’ It Real” and run and contribute to their own creative writing magazine, The Record. Students also have opportunities to learn from writers and artists invited to their English courses. Field trips to local museums, libraries and other literary venues (such as the Smithsonian, Library of Congress, Folger Shakespeare Library, National Archives) are regular excursions in many literature courses.

Our majors and minors read attentively and write curiously, clearly, and confidently, for a good English student can win an argument without ever raising her voice. As such, studying English readies our students for an unlimited range of professions and experiences.
