The Department of English offers programs in textual and cultural studies and in Creative Writing. Courses deal with both written and film/screen texts, and study such problems as the nature and implications of reading and interpretation, the production of meaning in language and culture, and the nature of literary forms. Creative Writing courses include classes on generic forms (fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction) and workshops where students develop their own writing.
