English Language and Literature Degree Program

Discover a world of education, culture, and pioneers in scholarship in one of the Midwest’s largest cities. The University of Chicago’s mission says, “In all we do, we are driven to dig deeper, push further, and ask bigger questions — and to leverage our knowledge to enrich all human life.” The English department nurtures the love students and faculty share for novels, poems, plays, paintings, films, comics, video games, and other art forms. The department also guides students in asking theoretical and philosophical questions related to literature and culture, as well as fosters critical thinking and research skills to find possible answers. In this major, you’ll learn a wide variety of literary-critical approaches that will guide you in your personal and professional life. You’ll attend a large university and reap the benefits of world-class research and diversity. But at the same time, you’ll feel like you’re at a small liberal arts college in the English department, with small courses led by discussions and professors who will know your name and care about your progress through freshman year to graduation and beyond. The department refers to itself as an “intellectual melting pot,” with classes from Medieval Epic to Shakespeare to Radical Documentary to the literature of 9/11.
