About University of Delaware English Dept
With roots tracing back to 1743, the University of Delaware combines tradition and innovation, offering students a rich heritage along with the latest in instructional and research technology. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer with diversity as one of its core values and, in that spirit, seeks a broad spectrum of candidates including women, minorities, and people with disabilities. The University of Delaware is the recipient of a National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Grant, focused on enhancing the climate of the university for women and underrepresented minority faculty. Located in scenic Newark, Delaware, within 2 hours of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., the University is a state-assisted, privately governed institution that enrolls approximately 17,000 undergraduates and 4,000 graduate students.
The English Department is a dynamic and collegial collection of scholars and teachers devoted to interdisciplinary research and teaching. We include a diverse set of programs, including literary studies, creative writing, professional writing, drama, film, and ethnic and cultural studies, and our faculty lead programs in environmental humanities, disability studies, material culture studies, and journalism, among many other programs. We are home to the award-winning Colored Convention Project and are currently developing other innovative digital humanities projects as well. In addition to the English major and several interdisciplinary minors, we offer a strong English Education major that prepares students to be NCATE-certified secondary education teachers of English. We offer as well two 4+1 programs that allow English majors to earn a BA in English followed by an MA in Teaching English as a Second Language, or an MA/MPA in public policy/public administration. Our faculty are given strong support to develop educational opportunities that engage our students within and beyond the classroom.
