At UConn, we offer a diverse and intellectually rigorous English curriculum that fosters vital skills in reading, writing, research, and analysis. Our students are thoughtful, creative, and effective communicators who share a deep curiosity about life’s great questions. Our faculty members are dedicated teachers and experts in their fields, which span writings from every major region, historical period, and genre. We keep our class sizes small, so students have plenty of opportunities to develop close working relationships with faculty mentors. Together, we nourish our passion for language and literature in their many forms.

English majors may pursue concentrations in Teaching English, Irish Literature, or Creative Writing, among others, and additional opportunities include study abroad in London, summer and academic-year internships, and contributing to the Long River ReviewUConn’s journal of art and literature, staffed by undergraduates.
