Welcome to the English Department at Webster University. Here you will find professors
and students who cultivate creativity, actively appreciate the beauty and power of
great writing, and consistently strive to connect art with life. Our classes are small
and discussion-oriented, and students are individually mentored by their professors
Each English major chooses one of three emphases:
We also offer a minor in English and a minor and certificate in professional writing. In addition, we contribute to the interdisciplinary drama studies minor offered at our London campus
Our students graduate with not only a substantial knowledge of literature and excellent writing abilities, but also the general critical reading, thinking, and communication skills necessary to make a mark on the world in whatever way they see fit.
