Welcome to the English Department

The English Department invites you to furnish your mind with beauty. By studying writing and literature, you will participate in a soul-building experience. You will read widely, think deeply, and write both creatively and critically. In English courses at Northwest University, you will study texts that have shaped Western culture as well as texts that challenge that culture—and you will add your voice to the conversation. Please join us!


We are proud of our diverse and accomplished faculty. Their scholarly interests range from Modernism to fairy tales to creative writing to composition theory to linguistics, and they’ve published poems, grammar books, scholarly articles, and more.  To learn more about our faculty, please select the link on the right under “Get to Know Us.”
