Whether you’re a first-year student working to improve your writing skills, a senior developing a creative or scholarly thesis, or a graduate student honing your teaching techniques or defending the dissertation and going on the job market, you’re part of the lively, engaging and supportive community that is Fordham’s English Department. We offer a major in English, a creative writing concentration, three minors, an M.A., and a fully funded Ph.D.

Faculty teach and do research in virtually every field of English, American, and postcolonial literatures as well as literary criticism, theory, and cultural studies. Our particular strengths are in medieval, early modern, 18th century, and American literatures and cultures.
