Programs of study
The Department of English, housed in the College of Liberal Arts, offers a range of fields of study including literature, language and linguistics, professional and public writing, and creative writing. We also offer a minor in cinema and media studies.
In addition, students in our graduate program have the opportunity to conduct in-depth research at our R1 classified University. Our award-winning faculty are specialists in their fields and invaluable mentors to our students.
The University of Nevada, Reno is located on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is a superb location to experience all four-seasons. Enjoy a plethora of outdoor activities, cultural vibrancy and an emerging nightlife and entertainment scene. Lake Tahoe is less than an hour away and hiking, biking, rock climbing and skiing are popular activities. It’s also only a two-hour drive to Sacramento and a four-hour drive to San Francisco.
