Whether you’re a first year student working on your writing skills, a senior writing a creative or scholarly thesis, or a graduate student honing teaching techniques or a dissertation, you’re part of the lively and engaging 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. We enjoy particular strengths in medieval, early modern, 18th century, and American literatures and cultures.
