A row in Davee Library


The English Department at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls is dedicated to preparing students to become insightful readers, thinkers, and writers, life-long learners with an awareness of historical, cultural, and philosophical issues. Their education in literature, writing, criticism, and language enables students to write effectively, think critically, read widely, weigh values, and communicate ideas. These abilities serve our majors in teaching, business, or graduate/professional education.

Classes in English Department majors and minors are small, providing students opportunities to get to know not just their instructors, but their fellow students as well. The faculty are dedicated, enthusiastic teachers who are readily available to students and committed to helping each student achieve his or her educational, personal, and professional goals.
