About this capture

Department of English
Welcome to Georgetown English
The English Department at Georgetown University has one of the largest undergraduate majors in the College of Arts and Sciences and houses one of the few stand-alone English Masters programs at a nationally ranked university. With its small classes, the department emphasizes close work with students and teaching excellence. Our faculty boasts a robust and diverse record of publication, and many have won major university teaching prizes. Reflecting a broadening of the field in recent years, our department offers courses in canonical and non-canonical literature and film in English. Many courses are interdisciplinary and our faculty have played a major role in founding the interdisciplinary programs of the College: American Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Medieval Studies, Catholic Studies, Program on Justice and Peace, African-American Studies, and the Program for Jewish Civilization​. The Department is the home of the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice, the Shakespeare Association of America, the University Writing Program, and the College’s undergraduate Journalism Program.
