The IU Southeast English Department helps students develop the analytic and communication skills they need to compete in the evolving world market of critical ideas.

Our dedicated department is large enough to offer Literature and Writing courses on a broad range of topics, but still small enough for students to make personal connections with their peers and professors. Recent courses have included:

  • Western World Masterpieces
  • Medieval English Literature in Translation
  • American Film Culture
  • Writing in the Arts and Sciences
  • Critical Practices
  • Writing for the Web

We take pride in our teaching, and our commitment to classroom excellence ensures that students engage in lively, thoughtful, and rigorous scholarship.

Students also have opportunities to publish their own work and gain experience in fields of writing and publishing by joining the staff of the IU Southeast Review, the IU Southeast Undergraduate Research Journal, or the Voice, the Magazine of the School of Arts and Letters.
