Welcome to the English Department
UMBC’s English Department is a vibrant center for teaching, learning, and research. We offer a Master of Arts in Texts, Technologies, and Literature and two undergraduate major tracks: the Literature Track, for the broad range and diverse traditions of literature written in English, and the Communication and Technology Track, for written and spoken communication and the new information technologies. The English minors feature literature, creative writing, journalism, and professional writing. The Department is also the home of UMBC’s innovative First-Year Composition Program.
