Overview

The program provides opportunities for students to consider and practice the applications of effective language use in diverse situations: professional, pragmatic, social, political, and aesthetic. The English- Writing Studies Emphasis program emphasizes knowledge and use of standard English in all written work, yet incorporates an understanding that English is a desirably diverse and variable phenomenon. 

The courses of study in English are designed to familiarize students with much of the traditional canon of literature. They are also designed to provide students with the critical and ethical skills necessary to interrogate this canon, to incorporate and legitimize their own and others’ “different” voices, not just in the academy, but in any of the many situations in which language influences human activity.

Mission Statement

The Department of English and Literature at Utah Valley University provides an innovative and stimulating learning environment to help broaden cultural experiences, improve skills in written and verbal communication, deepen and refine abilities in critical thinking, and prepare students for graduate school and/or careers. By offering courses, programs, and activities in college-level writing, creative writing, literature, technical communication, and education, the department fosters an invigorating and diverse learning community that will enhance the way students envision themselves and their world.
