Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.



The English Department offers courses in literature, theater, and film that empower you to write, speak, and think critically.

An English degree is excellent preparation for many professions and occupations, including law, medicine, teaching, journalism, communications, business, government and military service. Many of our English students pursue post-graduate study. Norwich also offers an English minor that will enhance any course of study.

A broad range of electives is open to every student, and provides period and thematic emphases across the literary canon. Specialty classes, from Military Literature to Third World Literature, broaden perspectives and allow students to study what interests them. Writers and artists will also have an outlet to express themselves in the Chameleon, our literary journal. A writing laboratory and computer clusters enable technology-assisted writing instruction.
