About English Department

Home Grown the Live Oak Reading Series: Sidney Thompson & Paige Poe
Since 1873, the English Department has remained at the heart of academics at TCU. As one of the largest departments on campus, we are proud to work with students at every level in their education, from first-year writing and literature courses to doctoral studies in English or Rhetoric and Composition. Today, the English Department approaches both venerable and popular subjects – from Jane Austin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Kenneth Burke or missionary writers, radical journalists, and comic books – with traditional and cutting edge tools. We work in both dusty and digital archives to advance knowledge about the centrality of culture in our lives. Our faculty have garnered significant scholarly recognitions in a broad range of intellectual areas, with special focus on British, American, and postcolonial literatures, rhetoric and composition, and creative writing. The department offers two majors in English and Writing, a minor in these areas, as well as Creative Writing, and the Ph.D. in English or Rhetoric and Composition.
