We are acutely aware of the intertwined nature of thinking and writing, of literary criticism and creative production. By paying close attention to language, interrogating our own ideas, and studying and producing creative works, our students not only become more self-aware, but also gain a deeper understanding of the world around them.
Students in the English program at Macalester College participate in a rich and supportive community, one that encourages them to seek out internships, pursue research interests, and study abroad. The department cultivates thinkers, readers, writers, creators, and ultimately more engaged citizens of the world. Recent graduates have gone on to become novelists and poets, actors, teachers, radio producers, editors, academics, environmental activists, journalists, spoken word artists, directors of non-profits, social workers, psychologists, grant writers, and lawyers.
The English department participates in the honors program. Eligibility requirements, application procedures and specific project expectations for the department are available from either the department office or the Academic Programs and Advising Office.
