Welcome to the Department of English

The English Department at the University of Wyoming provides a diverse and exciting educational experience to students from all over the country.  Here, students can pursue an engaging curriculum in an incomparable natural setting.

In the heart of the west, we aim to sustain and promote cultural understanding and participation through extensive reading, thoughtful intellectual inquiry and rigorous academic, professional and creative writing. At undergraduate and graduate levels, our curriculum extends through creative writing, composition and rhetoric, and literary and critical studies. Our internationally recognized faculty, who have won numerous teaching awards, offer a variety of courses in literature, film, popular culture, digital media, composition, professional writing, theory and creative writing. We encourage students to pursue studies that intrigue and challenge them.

Degree programs include an undergraduate major, minors in Literary Studies and Professional Writing, and a Master of Arts in English. Undergraduates are encouraged to pursue independent research through our English Honors program, and to participate in our intellectual and social community through the Upstart Crows, our English club.

To follow our ongoing activities, visit us on our UWYOENGLISH Facebook page.
