Department of English

The University of Idaho’s Department of English offers courses that cover a broad variety of writers, genres, and texts, ranging from practical considerations of craft to theoretical inquiries about interpretation.

We offer five degree programs: a B.A. degree in English (with four different emphases: Literature, Creative Writing, Professional, and Teaching); an M.F.A. in Creative Writing; an M.A. degree in English; an M.A. degree in Teaching English as a Second Language; and a Master of Arts in Teaching. 

As a department we form a unique social community, with readings, lectures, presentations, events sponsored by the English Honor Society Sigma Tau Delta, receptions, and book signings for visiting authors - all help draw us together.
