Dwell In Possibility...

Emily Dickinson

Encouraging the exploration of possibilities is of paramount concern to the engaging and knowledgeable faculty in the English Department at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. Although we're well trained in visualizing and then acting upon the intangible, our goal is to give tangible and realistic skills to the students who graduate in our discipline.

Students majoring in English graduate with more than the ability to read and write well. Through interactive internships with organizations throughout the region and journals such as Straylight Literary Magazine and The Ranger News, our graduates become leaders in various fields; from technical and fiction writing to political advocacy. 

A degree in English says that a person knows how to look at the possibilities and make something happen. The faculty of the English department at Parkside agree with J.R.R. Tolkien, "even the smallest person can change the course of the future." We want to help you change the world!

Come to Parkside.  Major in English!
