School of English and Interdisciplinary Studies


The School of English and Interdisciplinary Studies at South Dakota State University is a vibrant community of faculty and students dedicated to the teaching and learning of language, literature and culture. As they hone their abilities as writers, speakers, researchers, collaborators, analysts, problem solvers and leaders, our students explore the ways in which the literature we read and write develops our capacity to understand ourselves, connect with others and improve the world around us. Our program equips students with the knowledge and capabilities that are sought after by employers in a wide range of fields and industries, including education, business, publishing, public relations, technology, advertising, marketing, sales, law and medicine.
