We offer a wide range of unique classes taught by professors who love what they do and take joy in furthering their students intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Being a part of the English Department at Hope is much more than time spent in class and individual coursework. The department is dedicated to offering its students plenty of opportunities to supplement their learning and engage in it. From on-campus activities and guest speakers to volunteer opportunities, highly sought after workshops, and student-faculty collaboration, English students at Hope actively involve themselves in gaining practical experience and making unforgettable memories. Every student’s experience in the program is distinctive, tailored to his or her interests and passions.
