The curriculum offered by Seton Hall University enables you to personalize your degree: students may pursue a concentration "spoke" in creative writing, writing, or literary studies in addition to a foundational "hub" of courses that teach advanced research, British and American literature, and critical theory. Choose from our courses in Literary Editing and Publishing, Digital Humanities, and innovative approaches to all the major fields of Anglophone literature.
For creative writers, we offer a bridge to the New York City literary scene; we consistently place students in prestigious internships at venues such as One Story; and we place our graduates in top MFA programs with funding.
The English Department takes a holistic approach to literary studies, emphasizing both reading and advanced writing skills. All students complete a 12-credit “hub” of core requirements, which include literature, research and criticism courses. Then they choose to focus on one of three “spokes”: literature, writing or creative writing. In all three formats, students find engaging class discussions, connect with faculty mentors and receive one-on-one guidance to meet their goals.
