Department of English

The English Department offers students an array of degree programs, exciting courses, and opportunities for faculty/student interaction. Guided by the conviction that language and literature shape lives and cultures, department faculty offer both traditional and contemporary courses. Students can study anything from Shakespeare to Multicultural California Literature, from courses in Milton to courses in Gender and Sexuality, Early American Captivity Narratives, Horror in Literature and Culture, Film, Screenwriting, Pulp Detective Fiction, or Children's Literature.

You'll leave CSU Stanislaus grounded in both the classical and the contemporary, and you'll be well-prepared to move towards graduate school or a career having fortified your analytical and communicative skills and imaginative powers. English Majors can earn a degree in Literature, TESOL, or Teacher Education. We enjoy a low faculty to student ratio, allowing us to be available to students and innovative in our delivery of courses. Feel free to contact any of the faculty with questions or for more information about a degree in English from CSU Stanislaus.
