To pursue a degree in English at Auburn is to engage in the most vital and valued skills in the humanities and liberal arts traditions. Whether through creative or professional writing, through work in linguistics or literature, through the study of rhetoric or theory, students and faculty in English engage again and again in the skills of careful reading, skilled writing, and critical thinking.
The broad field of English Studies embraces a diversity of theories, practices, and subject matters, but our energetic, intellectually engaged community of students and faculty share in common a strong commitment to language itself, and to its capacity to shape the world.
