Our faculty is diverse and offers a wide range of approaches to literature, language and culture. In addition to having expertise in traditional and contemporary forms of literature across a range of historical periods and theoretical perspectives, faculty in the English department specialize in a variety of fields of study: American Studies, African-American Studies, British Studies, Cultural Studies, Global Studies, Journalism, Postcolonial Studies, and Women's Studies. Our faculty concentrates on excellence in teaching and personal concern for our students. Department faculty have achieved many honors, including Chancellor's Awards for Excellence, President's Award for Excellence, and Distinguished Teaching rank.

Professors in the English Department typically have an open-door policy and welcome students even beyond normal office hours for extra assistance. In addition to teaching, our faculty is active in research and in publishing their research findings in well-respected scholarly journals, anthologies, and books. Faculty members also present scholarly papers at national and international conferences annually; others read their creative work at prestigious state, national, and international venues.
