English News

You may think you know the English language—but how well do you really know it? The College of Liberal Arts’ English Department captures writers’ imaginations by helping them explore the intricacies and subtleties of the English language as they’ve developed—and continue to develop—across the English-speaking world. Students achieve greater mastery over the technical aspects of English writing while the faculty familiarizes them with the language through exposure to popular media, linguistic practices and literary traditions. When they leave Temple as alumni, they’re prepared to wield the English language in business, political, legal and academic positions. Read the faculty, student and alumni stories below and please contact us if you have a story of your own you think we should tell.
