Welcome from the Department Chair
Welcome to the Department of English at Andrews University, a distinguished body of teachers, scholars, and students dedicated to achieving the highest academic standards in the field of English. Our faculty members go the extra mile to provide excellence in teaching and scholarship, offering an education competitive with secular universities, all in the context of an Adventist Christian world-view.
Students here at Andrews will receive a comprehensive education in a broad range of disciplines included within the study of English--language, literature, writing, and TESL (teaching English as a second language).
As our teachers perpetuate the challenge to achieve academic excellence, they prepare students for the demands of a global job market, in which employers place a high premium on good communication skills.
We are delighted to have you join us in the English department-take a look at news and calendar for more information about what's happening.
Planned and unplanned activities abound. Come to the table in the department for convivial lunchtime conversation. Stop by one of the teachers' offices for a book recommendation or discussion of the latest events in the literary world. Enjoy a general education or elective English class no matter what your major. Above all, we invite you to explore and enjoy the power of the English language.
