Butler’s Department of English offers a comprehensive undergraduate degree with four separate paths to choose from, each designed specifically for a student’s intended area of study: literature; creative writing; public and professional writing; and literary theory, culture, and criticism.

We offer the resources of a large research institution with the commitment to small class size, passionate teaching, and rigorous individual mentoring of a small, private university. Our students graduate as deep and adventurous thinkers and communicators, with skills and mindsets suited to a range of careers and lives.
