About

Where can English take you?

English is trying to achieve two important goals this academic year—we are trying to increase the level of donations to help English majors study abroad, and we are beginning a campaign to expand graduate programming in the public humanities. 

In addition to supporting ongoing study abroad opportunities such as London Semester and Shakespeare in England and Italy, we are launching a new program in Greece, where students will study classical rhetorical texts as well as adaptations of ancient Greek myth and legend while learning about ancient and contemporary Greek culture. 

Regarding our graduate initiatives program initiatives, our vision is to develop a distinctive doctorate focused on the public humanities. As Daniel Fisher of the National Humanities Alliance notes, public humanities programs seek to extend the humanities beyond the ivory tower by engaging the public in conversations that inform contemporary debates, magnify community perspectives, preserve local cultures, and expand educational access. On the doctoral level, such programs have the added benefit of preparing graduates for jobs beyond the academy.

Thank you for supporting UW English!
