About

In the English department at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, we develop students’ imagination; we hone their analytical abilities; we teach them how a picture changes depending upon how it is framed and we give them strategies for making a powerful impact on an audience, whether they are writing creatively or analytically.

Overview

Program Overview

Becoming a better reader enhances an individual’s capacity to interpret the world, and it expands one’s ability to entertain (and ultimately weigh) multiple perspectives.

The list of topics you can study as an English major at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is a long one. It includes novels, films, video games, tweets, dictionaries, swear words, poems, Afrofuturist fantasies, pamphlets, and gender-neutral pronouns. Our courses range across eight centuries, and they intersect with many other disciplines: history, philosophy, music, science, art, law, and technology.

Finally, though, the main reason to study English is to increase your independence of mind and the power of your individual voice. Reading and writing depend upon sharpened senses, especially those of sight and sound. They develop an individual’s ability to analyze (take things apart) and synthesize (reassemble them in new ways). They demand self-awareness along with sensitivity to one’s audience. Power of mind and strength of feeling are amplified in interdependent ways. The end result of such discipline is that students gain the ability to reinvent themselves, again and again, and to find a career that is both challenging and fulfilling.
