Welcome to the English Department at the University of Oregon, located in the College of Arts and Sciences. As one of the largest departments at the University, our faculty, staff and students are dedicated to the study of literature, writing, and critical thinking. In addition to traditional literary fields, we have distinctive offerings in environmental humanities, comics studies, medical humanities, digital humanities, and the study of race and ethnicity.

As a member of the University of Oregon community, you have the right to learn, work, and live in an environment free of discrimination and hate. We all have a responsibility to maintain an environment free of prohibited harassment and discrimination.
