Where every student finds a niche

The English Department offers a diverse array of emphases, or areas of concentration, including Creative Writing; Critical Studies in Literatures, Cultures and Film; English Education; Linguistics; and the Rhetorics of Science, Technology and Culture. We are sure that you will find your passion in one of these areas. Not surprisingly, English majors are among the most popular programs chosen for students opting to double major in another program in humanities, social science, natural science, or education.

All of our programs in English are committed to excellence, and we have the following core expectations for all of our majors, regardless of the emphasis, all of which will serve you well beyond the classroom:

  • Write effectively, for different purposes and audiences.
  • Plan, conduct, and document research using appropriate sources.
  • Read and interpret text from a variety of critical perspectives.
  • Describe the nature and structure of the English language.


See specific details about our majors(M), comprehensive majors(CM), minors(m), and certificates(C).

I will graduate with pride as an English major from UWEC because of the high quality, passion, and dedication of the English Department's faculty, as well as the education they have sought to provide for me.
