English & Creative Writing

Explore the impact of the English language on literature, history, culture, and your own creative voice.

Develop confidence in your own creative and expository voice.

As part of the Department of English and Creative Writing, you will creatively encounter past and present literary cultural achievements to understand more deeply yourself and the world around you. 

Studying English literature and creative writing at Trinity prepares you for the complexities of life, sharpens your perspectives, and develops your ability to think and communicate with clarity, eloquence, and creativity. By engaging with authors and texts that have stood the test of time and by developing your own voice through writing, you will learn to navigate the intersecting stories that make up our world with both wisdom and compassion.

Alumni Perspective

“Taking a degree in English at TWU was one of the most significant career choices I’ve made. The critical thinking and writing skills cultivated in my English courses are essential in a marketplace where strong communication is critical to job success. My degree not only taught me how to read and interpret texts, but how to read and interpret the world – and that’s a skill I can carry anywhere I go.”

- Jillian Snyder ('08)
