Beyond the study of literature in English, the English department offers students the opportunity to earn a certificate in Creative Writing or a Certificate in Journalism.
The English Department regularly sponsors readings and events such as Global Film Series, the Center for Global Film and Media screenings, the Buffalo Film Seminars, Poetics Plus Poetry Series, Exhibit X Fiction Series, Early Modern Reading Group. These events regularly bring students together with prominent scholars as well as famous and emerging writers.
For undergraduates who wish to pursue graduate studies in English, we offer a 5-year BA/MA degree. Please visit the English department website or contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies for more information.
