Overview

The English program, offered by Greenville University, welcomes students who are interested in learning about the impulses, dreams, and lives of famous authors and individuals who have shared these experiences through their literature, their language, and their values and belief systems.

In the English Department at Greenville University, we empower students to build professional and creative skills in a faith-based environment.  We dedicate ourselves to four interrelated pursuits: experiencing and analyzing the diversity and depth of literature in the English language; investigating the origins of that language; cultivating exceptional writing skills in academic, professional, and creative contexts; and reading texts within a global context.  Our chief mission as educators is to enable students to realize the great worth of the literary life, which prepares students for global citizenship as critical thinkers, careful readers, arts advocates, and dedicated professionals.
