Students pursuing an emphasis in English have a broad array of interests in the language and written arts. These students are prepared for transfer by studying a variety of curricula that spans culture, politics, and concepts from around the world while focusing on rhetoric, literature, and creative writing.
The English department publishes Prairie Ink, a literary annual, that welcomes fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama, and literary criticism. Prairie Ink also accepts graphic and visual works. Submissions from the Barton community are encouraged.
