English Department

Welcome to the Department of English and Public Relations. As you will find as you access our material, both majors provide excellent backgrounds in writing and oral skills, as well as preparations for many diverse careers. You will notice that our programs are student-centered; that is, we require and encourage student participation in all phases of the curriculum. All students must have at least one field experience or internship, participate in a colloquia series, and do some kind of community service during their stay at Westminster. Each major is climaxed by a major capstone independent project or seminar.

The Department of English and Public Relations is staffed by a well-qualified and diverse group of professors. As you will see from their individual biographies, their academic and professional interests and experiences give students a broad exposure to literature, writing, and public relations and related communications fields. The English and Public Relations majors now number between 75 and 100, while English, PR, film and writing minors number over 50.

Enjoy your exploration of our programs. If you have any questions or wish further information, please use the e-mail links on the Faculty and Staff page.
