The UMBC English Department is a vibrant center for teaching, learning, and research, offering courses on literature, communication, writing, rhetoric, journalism, creative writing, and digital media. Our faculty are among the most productive researchers at UMBC and have interests in a wide range of specialties in literature, writing, communication, and technology.
Our department also hosts Bartleby, the university’s creative arts journal, and supports the student newspaper, The Retriever. Recent students have served as editors of The UMBC Review, the university’s journal of undergraduate research. Advanced students may choose to apply to the English Honors program, in order to work one-on-one with a professor on an extended project.
The English Department’s main office is located in room 423 of the Performing Arts & Humanities Building. Our office doors are usually open, so please drop by and see us!
