Welcome to the Department of English

Majoring in English at UNC Wilmington means more than reading books and writing papers. The best minds in the country meet the students on the common ground of learning through the Buckner Lectures, which has brought such notables as Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Updike and award-winning author Susan Cheever to campus.

Here, English majors are part of a community of learners, contributing original scholarship and also putting this knowledge into practice.

From one-on-one interaction with faculty to service learning opportunities built into the curriculum, the English Department values student contributions and supports them in experiences that prepare them for life after college.
