Welcome to Florida State University's Department of English. With four academic concentrations and two certificate programs, our department offers a rich curriculum for undergraduate and graduate students.
We come together through our shared goal of teaching, writing, reading, and understanding texts. We equip our ambitious, multi-talented undergraduate and graduate students to venture out into every corner of the new creative economies: from academia to artistic entrepreneurialism, from online publishing to social media marketing.
We invite you to explore our program offerings and to meet our dedicated faculty, students, and staff.
