Program description


The English Department at the University of Wyoming provides a diverse and exciting educational experience to students from all over the country. Here, students can pursue an engaging curriculum in an incomparable natural setting.

In the heart of the west, we aim to sustain and promote cultural understanding and participation through extensive reading, thoughtful intellectual inquiry and rigorous academic, professional and creative writing. At undergraduate and graduate levels, our curriculum extends through composition and rhetoric, and literary and critical studies. Our internationally recognized faculty, who have won numerous teaching awards, offer a variety of courses in literature, film, popular culture, digital media, composition, professional writing, and theory. We encourage students to pursue studies that intrigue and challenge them.

Degree programs include an undergraduate major, minors in Literary Studies and Professional Writing, and a Master of Arts in English. Undergraduates are encouraged to pursue independent research through our English Honors program, and to participate in our intellectual and social community through the Upstart Crows, our English club.


UW students graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English will have demonstrated an ability to:

  • read, interpret, and write about a diverse range of texts in English, for example literature, film, digital media, and popular culture;
  • understand those texts analytically and critically;
  • understand those texts on the basis of careful close reading;
  • understand those texts through past and current literary theory;
  • understand that those texts are culturally constructed in time, place, and tradition;
  • understand how those texts inform culture;
  • participate in the critical and cultural discourses of English;
  • participate clearly and appropriately through multiple spoken and written forms.
