Declare English
Welcome to the English major at the University of Tennessee. The English Department offers a rich array of coursework that both exposes students to the broad contours of the field and gives them the opportunity to concentrate in their areas of special interest, including Creative Writing; Literature, Criticism and Textual Studies; Rhetoric and Writing; and Technical Communication. Majors can expect their classes to train them in the interpretive and communication skills necessary to flourish in a rapidly evolving society, a globalized culture, and an increasingly information-based, text-saturated economy.
