The study of English at the University of Wyoming takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject matter. Other programs working closely to meet the needs of students within the department, include:
As with states all across the nation, the number of English Language Learners is increasing at rates higher than any other social group in the state of Wyoming. The need to address the specific educational issues and challenges these students face by way of culturally and linguistically responsive professional practices is of critical importance to the vitality of our classrooms, schools, and communities.

The Writing Center
The UW Writing Center is part of a national network of writing centers that provide writing instruction and links to writing resources. Although individual, face-to-face conferences comprise the backbone of their work, they also meet with small groups and even whole classes on every aspect of the writing process. Writers can come in at any time in the writing process (brainstorming, development, rough draft, revisions, etc.) to discuss their work with interested and experienced writing teachers. The goal of The UW Writing Center is to suggest writing and revising strategies writers can apply to more than just one piece of writing. For complete program information, please visit The Writing Center online.
Creative Writing Program
The University of Wyoming Creative Writing program includes a 2-year studio degree culminating in an MFA in Creative Writing and a creative writing minor. Please visit The Creative Writing Program for more information.
