Studying English at Butler provides four academic tracks: Literature; Creative Writing; Public and Professional Writing; and Literary Theory, Culture, and Criticism. It enjoys a distinguished history and contemporary relevance through our faculty’s significant national publications in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and scholarship. We offer the resources of a large research institution with the benefits of a more intimate private university. Our commitment to small class sizes, passionate teaching, and rigorous individual mentoring builds strong one-to-one relationships between students and faculty and among classmates. Our graduates leave Butler as deep thinkers and communicators, with skills and mindsets suited to a range of careers and lives.
