The Binghamton University Department of English, General Literature and Rhetoric offers students the opportunity to study literature and language in a deep and complex manner.
Concentrations are available in global culture, creative writing, and rhetoric. Literature courses deal broadly with genres and themes from the past and present, and teach students how to read and analyze texts; creative writing courses foster the development of serious creativity; rhetoric courses deal with both the theory and practice of communication, as well as the history of oral and written argument.

The honors program in English consists of two courses taken in the student’s senior year: ENG 498, Honors Seminar; and ENG (RHET) 499, Honors Thesis (CW 499, Honors Portfolio). The designation of honors in English is awarded to students who receive at least a B+ grade in the Honors Seminar and at least an A– in the Honors Thesis or Portfolio.
In the major in English, the two honors courses take the place of two advanced electives. Majors concentrating in rhetoric or creative writing should consult the undergraduate director about the ways in which the honors courses may substitute in their curricula.
