English at Providence College

Why Study English at Providence College?
Because you love to read and write. Because you want to challenge conventional thinking and celebrate landmark authors. Because you want to be prepared for professional life after PC. The English department at PC has something for everyone. Led by faculty who are teachers, scholars, and writers, our courses cover the full range of literature in English — from the medieval adventures of Chaucer’s pilgrims to the vibrant novels of Toni Morrison and beyond.

Our classrooms are places where students and professors talk freely about the ideas, characters, and artistic choices they encounter. We offer three bachelor’s degree programs — English, Creative Writing, and Secondary Education. Each one is rigorous. Each one is engaging. Each one will enhance your ability to analyze, communicate, and research — important tools for anyone’s success.
