The Department of English at the University of Maryland offers comprehensive programs in undergraduate and graduate education, with a wide range of creative and analytic courses, degrees and innovative opportunities for students of all backgrounds and experiences.
Our English major has four tracks—Literary and Cultural Studies; Language, Writing and Rhetoric; Creative Writing; and Media Studies—which allows students to specialize within and across the multiple field strengths of the department. We also offer double major and honors options, as well as multiple minors, to help you curate the degree experience that’s right for you.
