About

Rutgers University-Newark boasts one of the country's most respected English Departments, with an internationally respected faculty devoted to research and teaching in a wide range of subjects.

Students with interest in literature and writing can study English and American literature, exploring within specialized periods such as the Renaissance or the 19th Century or concentrate on genre courses in fiction, poetry, or drama, or single author courses such as Shakespeare, Milton, and Joyce.

Students choosing to study world literature in translation can take courses in African, Caribbean, and Asian literature in English. Our department offers courses that intersect with Women's and Gender Studies, LGBT Studies, Film Studies, and African-American and African History.  There are also opportunities to learn creative writing (prose and poetry), business writing, and writing for the Internet and computers.
