OUR FACULTY

Faculty are nationally recognized for their scholarship and teaching excellence.

OUR PROGRAM

  • Students regularly present at regional and national academic conferences.
  • Students build their resumes and skills by working in on- and off-campus internships.
  • We foster a vibrant community in which students publish and present in venues that extend beyond the classroom, including the New Perspective, the student newspaper; Century, the college art and literary journal; and local open mic nights.
  • We sponsor a variety of cultural events such as The Distinguished Visiting Author series, the Wisconsin Book Festival and the United Nations film festival.

OUR COURSES

  • Students participate in small discussion and workshop-based classes.
  • Students complete a program of study that provides both a strong foundation in literature and writing, and opportunities to focus on special areas of interest.
  • Courses range from Native American Literature to Science Fiction, great author studies including Shakespeare and Toni Morrison, and electives covering the Victorian period, film studies, post-colonial literature or creative writing.
  • Students participate in a senior capstone experience in which they, working closely with faculty, complete a sustained scholarly or creative project.
  • The program offers a number of courses in writing that allow students to develop their creative capacities as majors in English.
