  • Program Overview

    The Gannon University English Department inspires students to be informed readers and seasoned writers.  Guided by the belief that the study of language and literature enriches the imagination, promotes lifelong learning, and enhances appreciation of diversity, we engage students in ongoing critical and cultural debates whose implications extend beyond the classroom. The Department also offers students a variety of internships, and a 3-3 program in legal studies with Duquesne University, and features student-run publications such as the Gannon Knight (the University newspaper) and Totem (a literary magazine). Whether they seek careers in education, publishing, journalism, media, public relations, government, business, industry or law, Gannon English Majors acquire the scholarly focus, broad preparation and intellectual awareness that form the basis of an intensive liberal arts education.
