Here at the East Carolina Department of English, we are a vibrant
and energetic collection of teachers, scholars, researchers, and
writers. If you want to study here, we offer three degrees: a B.A. in
English, an M.A. in English with concentrations in eight different
areas, and a Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Writing, and Professional Communication.
We also offer undergraduate minors in English, Creative Writing, Film
Studies, and Linguistics. You can earn an undergraduate certificate
in business and technical communication or teaching English to speakers
of other languages (TESOL) and post-baccalaureate certificates in
professional communication, multicultural and transnational literatures,
teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL), and teaching
English in two-year colleges.
The diversity of this department is one of its strengths: you can
take coursework in literature, creative writing, technical and
professional communication, rhetoric and composition, multicultural and
transnational literatures, linguistics, theory and criticism, folklore,
children's literature, teaching English to speakers of other languages,
and film studies. You will also be in contact with faculty who are
pedagogical scholars--that is, they study teaching. The Department of English also works closely with the University Writing
Program; for more information on the UWP, please visit its pages on the
Composition/Writing Foundations Program, the
Writing Across the Curriculum Program, and the
University Writing Center.
