"I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say."
"Whosoever wishes to know about the world must learn about it in its particular details. Knowledge is not intelligence."
Heraklietos of Ephesos
A major in English opens your mind, heart and soul to endless possibilities and wide-ranging careers. We have had graduates go into drama, law, mass media, politics and education. This department teaches students how to think critically as well as how to understand and communicate in a diverse world.
A&T’s Department of English offers an undergraduate major and minor and three graduate degrees (M.A., M.S. and M.A.T.). Students working towards a B.A. in English take a core of ten classes and then choose an area of concentration in African American Literature, Creative Writing, English Literature or Technical Writing. A B.S. is offered in Undergraduate Teaching (Secondary Education). Our classes address a variety of innovative and traditional subjects, from literary surveys to focused examinations of subjects such as film, science fiction and hip-hop culture.
The English faculty comprises distinguished scholars and passionate teachers, who care about helping students become the intellectuals and leaders of tomorrow.
The University Writing Center and Composition Central, our two writing centers, enhance and promote student success. We publish an undergraduate literary journal and host a spoken word performance troupe. Our Technical Writing students intern at major governmental and business sites.
