Welcome to the English Department
Nearly every student at Iowa State University takes classes in the English department. Our courses range from constructed languages to creative writing, popular culture and science fiction. Whatever your major, the communication and critical thinking skills you’ll learn here will play a key role in your life as a student and in your life after graduation.
Our students go on to win national awards, such as the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing (Andie Dominick) and the 2010 National Teacher of the Year award (Sarah Brown Wessling).
Our degree programs offer both undergraduate and graduate students broad opportunities to study such fields as creative writing, linguistics, literature, English education, communication and rhetoric and to engage in hands-on research. Take a look at the course catalog or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We are looking forward to seeing you in our classes!”
