Overview

The English program at Transylvania University, while based in the study of British and American literature, offers courses that explore other traditions and issues, including women’s literature, film, popular culture and how to write poetry and short fiction.

Through the program, you will learn to read critically, reflect on what you’ve read, engage with literatures of different cultures and times and write in different forms—from expository to creative.

Students participate in the International English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, and in the visits to campus by the Delcamp Visiting Writers and the winners of the Judy Gaines Young Literary Award. They also organize events that let them pursue their interests together.
