Department of English

Saint Louis University’s Department of English trains students in the practice of writing and the study of literature. We engage in the art of language in its full range of expression, encouraging encounters with emerging technologies, diverse cultures and marginalized voices.

At a practical level, the department also helps to provide undergraduates with a range of skills necessary for professional careers in education, law, medicine, public service, media, writing and other fields.
Our highly regarded M.A. and Ph.D. programs prepare students for careers in the academic world and other professions that focus on writing and interpretation.

Our diverse faculty have developed wide-ranging expertise, exploring a world which is equally full of diverse kinds of texts. Our method is to work with our students in developing individual research pathways, often arising out of our own research and publications, to enable them to understand the world of textuality.
