Department of English

The English department offers both the B.A. and the M.A. in English. Students can also minor in English or in Professional Writing. The department has approximately 120 English majors and 25 graduate students. The department is small enough for faculty and students to know one another, and our classes are of a size that allows much individual attention. At the same time, the department is large enough to allow us to have specialists in all important areas of English and American literature.

The department sponsors the English Club, a student activity group for students in English, and Oakwood, an annual literary magazine written and edited by students.

The English Department also sponsors many activities on campus, such as the Great Plains Writers' Conference and the Consider the Century Conference.

An Evening with Harvey Dunn's Feminine Images

Over two nights of performances last April, faculty, staff, and others with the College of Arts & Sciences culminated a year of great work on the South Dakota illustrator and painter, Harvey Dunn. This work provides a platform for the project as it looks to expand in the coming years.
