Welcome to the English Department

This site’s where you’ll find specific information regarding our undergraduate and graduate English programs here at Marshall University. You can learn more about our courses, the degree paths you can choose, or our dedicated students and faculty, and their many accomplishments and interests.

We’ve also got a lot of Good News to share with you. Read about RaJon Staunton, who was chosen to represent West Virginia in a Teen Vogue article. The article showcases how individuals a celebrated Pride during the pandemic.

Check out what an English degree can do for you, and read about our Visiting Writers Series, or our literary magazine Et Cetera. And there’s the annual William J. Maier Writing Awards (for which all students in our courses are eligible), and our chapter of the English honors society Sigma Tau Delta. And, of course, there’s more.

So, contact us, and let us know if you have questions.
