The faculty in English and American Literatures offer courses on the British and American literary traditions from their origins to the present, as well as on literature written in English in the Caribbean, Africa, Latin America, and Asia.  We also offer creative writing courses in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and experimental media.

On this site, you can find information about the English and American Literatures major, about our faculty, about individual courses, and about research and creative writing opportunities for students.
