The English Program
With majors in literature and English education, the UE Department of English offers students a strong academic background, whether they are interested in using their degree toward graduate school or in front of a classroom as an English teacher.
A degree in English from the Univeristy of Evansville has prepared for alumni for success in a variety of careers - in business, teaching, law, and many of the nation's top graduate schools.
The Department of English offers students the chance to explore the intersection of language and imagination. As they read works that challenge, trouble, inspire, and delight, students learn to approach their lives and our world with deepened understanding. UE English majors belong to a community of close-knit faculty who nurture and develop them as scholars through active participation in discussion-based classes, presentations at scholarly conferences, and internship opportunities. Students developed skills of unlimited practical value making them adaptable and marketable when seeking jobs. In a global environment, the act of imaginative understanding, which is at the heart of literary study, develops the capacities students need in their encounters with diverse cultures.
