The PSU Department of English is on the cutting edge. In today’s increasingly complex and global culture, the English department is uniquely positioned to help you translate your creative talents into a successful career and a fulfilling future. At the core of what we do is an emphasis on the intersection between the creative and the critical.

When you graduate with a degree in English from Plymouth State, you will be ready to excel in today’s careers that demand ingenuity, rigorous analysis, and the ability to think outside of the box.

Each year we send our graduates into the world to write plays and novels and poems and essays; we send them to graduate school in English and law and journalism and education; we send them to work in fields as diverse as publishing, investigative journalism, web marketing, social service, and politics; and we send them into middle and high schools to teach writing and literature.

Our department is a vibrant, welcoming, and collaborative group of readers and writers, and we look forward to working with you as you chart your path to your future!
