About Us

Mission

The Department of English at the University of South Florida educates undergraduate and graduate students in literature, media, rhetoric and composition, and creative writing. Faculty and graduate students produce high impact scholarship and creative work that creates new knowledge, translates our research for a broader public, and facilitates engaged practice. Our work is founded in evidentiary reasoning, interpretation, and creativity. We provide cutting- edge training in writing for first-year students and for advanced students in diverse disciplines across the university.
