We’re a collaborative community where students and faculty challenge each other intellectually and creatively.
English students at Hope dive deep into literature of every kind and learn how to improve their writing with masters of the craft. Through composition, creative writing and literature classes, our students become more artistic in their scholarship and more knowledgeable in their creativity.
Small classes and one-on-one collaboration foster an environment that is both demanding and encouraging. We offer a wide range of unique courses taught by professors who love what they do and take joy in furthering their students intellectually, spiritually and socially. Being a part of our department 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. We work together and support each other.
