Department of English

Page Turners

The Department of English at Bridgewater State University enhances students’ appreciation and knowledge of literature and the writing process. Students choose from a rich variety of courses in literature and creative and professional writing, and gain professional and academic experience through internships, honors coursework and undergraduate research. 

Our faculty members apply their own passion for the written word to help BSU students develop keen analytical and critical thinking skills, and hone their ability to write clear, compelling and persuasive prose. We offer an undergraduate major in English with concentrations in Writing and Writing Studies and Educator Licensure, minors in Literature and Literary Studies and Writing and Writing Studies as well as a Master of Arts in English and a Master of Arts in Teaching English. The liberal arts foundation we provide serves our graduates well in a wide range of professional fields, including teaching, law, medicine, publishing, creative writing, public relations and advertising.
