Learning outcomes

Numerous faculty have won College and University teaching awards. In addition to prize-winning original fiction and poetry, writing faculty have produced nationally acclaimed textbooks, and faculty research regularly appears in books published by distinguished university presses, as well as the foremost journals in the profession, such as Publications of the Modern Language Association, English Literary History, Modern Drama, and the Journal of English and Germanic Philology.

Faculty supervisors support these teaching assistants in their work.
