Reading and writing are at the heart of human culture. Through the literature that we read and the literature that we create, we connect with others in our own communities and around the world.

The English Department at Hiram College provides dynamic programs in literature and creative writing that prepare students for rewarding careers, challenging graduate-school experiences, and rich personal lives.

With two majors and two minors, the English Department offers students the flexibility to tailor their education to their own personal goals. Working closely with a faculty mentor, students design a course plan, seek out internships, and develop senior capstone projects that allow them to reach their full potential. Our creative writing program is one of the few in Ohio to highlight creative nonfiction while also offering advanced coursework in fiction, poetry, and screenwriting.
