Welcome to the Department of English at Whittier College.
At a college named after one of the most important of nineteenth-century American poets, a man known for his commitment to literary art as an agent of social and political justice, it should be no surprise to know that we believe that the study of language and literature is at the core of the liberal arts, those aspects of education that make us humane and free.
On these pages, you will find information about the rich variety of courses, texts, and teaching styles of our department. We welcome you to come and explore what we have to offer you as a major or minor in English at Whittier.
