As a humanities discipline in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, the GW Department of English is especially interested in the artistic exploration of identity, community, cultural conflict and history. Our more than 30 faculty members challenge students to consider the historical, personal and political impacts that literature makes upon people and culture. Students and faculty frequently publish articles and books, present at conferences and win awards and other recognition for their work. Our alumni have gone on to pursue varied and successful careers in the arts, business, education, entrepreneurship, journalism, law, publishing, public service and more.
