English

In the English Department at Trinity College, faculty and students collaborate closely together as they explore a wide range of literary forms, genres, and media from an equally wide range of periods and cultures.  We are proud of our faculty members, who are actively publishing scholars and artists as well as dedicated teachers and mentors.  And we are equally proud of our students, who work hard alongside the faculty to discover meaning in literary texts and to express ideas, images, and arguments in well-honed, well-crafted writings of their own. Trinity English majors have become award-winning novelists, poets, and playwrights as well as lawyers, doctors, professors, editors, and marketing specialists. 

Here, you will be able to learn about our faculty, the requirements for our major and our concentrations in literary studies, creative writing, and film, our course offerings, our students, past and present, and the variety of opportunities and career paths available to English majors at Trinity.  The Web site also offers a view into the kind of community of students, scholars, artists, and teachers we are, as it outlines for you the range of readings, programs, activities, and events that enhance and augment our work in classrooms, seminars, and conferences throughout the academic year.
