English is one of the largest and most diverse departments in the College of Arts and Science at MU. Our faculty of highly accomplished scholars and creative writers teach a broad range of courses and seminars in both traditional and emerging areas of our field. We are proud that six of our professors have won the university-wide Kemper Award for Excellence in Teaching since 2010. Our undergraduate courses have enrollments between 15 and 30 students and are purposely designed for intense discussion and close interaction with professors. Explore some of our recent achievements by visiting the Faculty Bookshelf and reading the latest issue of the department's newsletter, Tate Times 2016 (pdf).
