ImpactNC with you gift today!

The English department is home to three majors, five minors (including Film & Screen Studies), eleven talented faculty members, and eighty of the most wonderful students (definitely on campus and probably the world). We are a community that loves and studies language, creativity, and critical thinking. A gift on Day of Giving to the English department will go directly to supporting student learning activities. Support from donors has provided field trips and learning experiences for students beyond the classroom. Our students have formed a Film Club, won national poetry prizes, published in our own 30 North and other literary magazines, hosted radio shows, and studied abroad.
