How have novels shaped the way we fall in love? What are the social uses of humor? Does language reflect reality, or invent it? Oberlin College & Conservatory’s English department addresses a range of questions pertaining to literary, cultural and social texts.


Within this broad understanding of English, students can define their own trajectory in conversation with other fields, from philosophy and art history to anthropology and comparative American studies.

An Open Field of Inquiry with Contemporary Relevance

  • The need to make meaning, the desire to construct narratives, the call to find one’s voice, are fundamental human values that have taken different forms across historical periods and contexts. 
  • In Oberlin College & Conservatory’s English classes students learn how to interpret traditional literary genres such as poems, plays, and novels, but also to decode films, magazines, websites and other cultural objects. 

Programme Structure

Courses include: 
  • Persona and Impersonation
