Welcome

Welcome to the UNK Department of English. We are happy that you have chosen to pursue your education with us. Our department has a long-standing reputation for outstanding teaching. Members of our faculty are among the best in the nation and publish actively in their specializations. Graduates in our program have gone on to become successful teachers, writers, editors, and scholars, while others have entered careers in business, law, medicine, government, and the arts.

We offer many opportunities for students to gain a richer educational experience: visiting artists and lecturers, workshops, and support for national competitions and student conferences as well as student publications and organizations. We also provide many opportunities for our students to earn scholarships to support their education.

So if you are one with a passion for reading and writing about literature, or for creative expression, we have something to offer you. We look forward to working with you and enriching your life as a student of language and literature.
