Faculty in the Department of English teach, conduct research in, and advance the discipline of English Studies, including rhetoric and composition, creative writing, technical communication, film and media studies, literature and language. They prepare undergraduate students to pursue further education and/or careers; to think, write, and speak clearly; to produce authoritative scholarship and inspiring creative work; to read with pleasure, skill, and understanding; and to appreciate the power and subtlety of discourse in various media.

While gaining a broad liberal education, English majors also learn practical skills that provide a base for almost any career. Graduates traditionally enter the fields of education, journalism, publishing, or communications. They also work for computer, engineering, and public relations firms or pursue careers in politics and government. An English background provides excellent training for law school and other graduate programs.
