Welcome to the Department of English

Welcome to the Department of English, one of the largest and most diverse departments on campus and a part of the College of Humanities at California State University-Northridge. We offer a wide variety of courses and programs in the field of literature, language, composition, rhetoric and creative writing; on the undergraduate and graduate level. In support of the English Department mission, we are dedicated with providing students with analytical and critical thinking skills, studying British and American literature and gaining knowledge on their literary and cultural history. We will help students and cultivate their imagination while challenging them to write effectively and read critically. The faculty and staff of the Department of English are committed to helping students meet their educational goals and expects its majors, especially, to be able to write clearly and correctly.
