Welcome to the English Department at Lindenwood University! We are a dynamic and growing department, and we offer a wide range of courses in both the classical and modern canon in both British and American Literature as well as in Creative Writing. We offer two major programs of study: literature and creative writing. A dual emphasis is allowed and requires completion of both programs’ requirements. A Writing Certificate is also available. The English department at Lindenwood maintains close working relationships with other programs on campus, such as the American Studies program, the Theater program, and the MFA in Writing program.
We invite you to explore our department website using the links to the left. More information about each of our degree program is available on these pages, as well as information about our minor in English. Information about the first-year writing program (ENG 11000, 15000, and 17000) is available at this link. The current students page provides information about upcoming events, advising information, and useful links. The prospective students page summarizes the information you’ll need to know when making the decision to become an English major. Program Objectives describes the mission of our department, and the faculty directory lists all of the full-time and part-time faculty members in the English department.
