WCU’s Department of English is committed to the idea that a solid liberal arts education provides the foundation for success, both in the classroom and beyond graduation.
Each year, approximately 3,200 students enroll in our undergraduate and graduate classes, and each year approximately 55 students earn an English degree from WCU. Currently, 317 students major in English at WCU, with an average student-to-teacher ratio of 17. We are committed to giving our students an excellent educational experience while they are here at WCU.
Our classrooms are equipped with the latest technology in order to provide students with marketable, up-to-the-minute skills. Because of the work they do here, many of our students leave WCU ready to enter the hottest fields—from web development, screenwriting, and fiction or magazine editing to careers in corporations and nonprofits.
