About English at the University of Houston
Faculty and students in the Department of English collaborate in a rich mix of intellectual and creative pursuits. Together, we ask crucial questions about the role of the humanities and literature in a diverse, pluralistic public life. How do texts, writers, and readers make meaning? What is at stake in our study and creation of literary texts? Our award-winning faculty contribute to four programs within the department—literary studies, creative writing, rhetoric and composition, and linguistics—with many working across those boundaries. Students may pursue bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level degrees.
