The Department of English at The University of Alabama seeks to cultivate the arts of reading, writing, and speaking the English language.
We encourage the creation and interpretation of imaginative works of literature; we strive for a mastery of composition, linguistics, literary history, and theory.
We challenge our students to read, write, and think in a sophisticated and critical fashion; to understand the historical evolutions of American and English literatures; to participate in the development of knowledge through scholarly research, publication, and creative writing; and to provide meaningful service, to the state and nation, as teachers, writers, and scholars.
Our commitment is to enrich the intellectual and cultural life of our campus, our community, and the individuals who compose them.
