For Alumni

The Department of English continues to turn out scholars who go on to teach in academic institutions across the United States and other countries and to publish important critical work within the discipline. Please look at our list of recent job placements to see where the recent departmental PhDs now teach. We also invite the Department's graduate and undergraduate alumni to visit our Alumni directories for updates on your former colleagues and to tell us what’s new about yourself as you progress in your career. We are also constructing an Alumni Bookshelf, for some of the many recent books by our graduates, and, for your convenience, a link to the University Alumni page. Finally, please consider making a donation to support the graduate program in the Department of English.
