About the Program

Culver-Stockton’s English program develops mastery of writing, researching and critical-thinking skills. We advance your knowledge of literature and the English language in preparation for careers in writing, publishing and the corporate world as well as graduate study in English, library science and law.

What Makes the Program Distinctive?

Our full-time faculty’s interests range from Classical to contemporary literature, from the Bible to the most recent developments in literary theory, from “classical” authors like John Donne to Stephen King, from traditional fields of study to gaming. The course of study allows students a smooth transition to graduate work in English. The required internships allow students to experience career possibilities and have already provided students with job offers awaiting them when they graduate.
