Words open worlds. When we study literature, we study how human experience can be embodied in language that awakens, delights, inspires and excites. Reading together, we meet new characters, cultures, and time periods, while also encountering ourselves in new ways. Through lively discussion and rigorous research, UE English majors explore literary works of lasting influence while developing the critical skills that will prepare them for success beyond our classrooms. Whether they work in business or education, serve their communities in libraries or literacy programs, or go on to graduate school or law school, our graduates leave the University of Evansville's English Department ready to engage with the challenges of today’s world.
