¿Qué aprenderé?

To study English is to understand its power, its possibilities and its pleasures. As an English major at Illinois Wesleyan, you’ll examine writing past and present to discover its variety and complexity. You’ll learn to write with clarity and imagination.

Why English at Illinois Wesleyan?

• Our English program offers two tracks for majors: a concentration in literature and a concentration in writing.

• The literature track focuses on reading, research, critical analysis and speaking skills.

• The writing track links the study of literature to producing creative writing and journalism, with courses in writing fiction, poetry, the essay, news and news features.

• Opportunities for research and independent study are available and encouraged for qualified students in both the writing and literature concentrations.

• The student-run literary cooperative Tributaries and the campus chapter of the national English honors society Sigma Tau Delta foster a sense of community within and beyond our campus.

• The Department encourages students to broaden their experiences by studying abroad for a semester or during May Term.

Within the literature track, we offer classes in a wide variety of periods and genres that begin with a survey of literature through practical criticism and culminate in a senior year seminar that takes a close look at a particular topic in literature. Students in the literature track have the opportunity to take on independent studies, present papers at research conferences (IWU offers both MUSE and the John Wesley Powell Conference), and work toward research honors in their senior year.
