Department Chair: Bernhard Kuhn
As an English major at Union, students tackle a broad range of topics, including historical, cultural, gender and author studies. Courses explore diverse cultures in "Discourses on the Vietnam War," "Jewish Women Writers," "Asian American Literature and Film" or "Irish Literature and Film."
English majors contribute to the campus literary magazine, the Idol, and student newspaper, Concordiensis, as well as poetry and fiction readings. They edit and frequently publish in The Minerva Review, an undergraduate scholarly journal.
