Department of English

As writers and thinkers, English majors explore fundamental questions about the formal beauty of individual works, the status of literature within culture, literary history, major authors, the defining characteristics of genres, the politics of interpretation, and the methods of literary scholarship and research.

Christopher Newport's English program also offers students the opportunity to develop their skills in imaginative and professional writing, including journalism, public relations and grant writing, and multimedia texts.

You can also choose from nine disciplinary and interdisciplinary minors:

  • African-American studies
  • Childhood studies
  • Civic engagement and social entrepreneurship
  • Digital humanities
  • Film studies
  • Literature
  • Medieval and Renaissance studies
  • Women’s and gender studies
  • Writing

Our students write what the world reads.
