The English program of Duquesne University has two tracks: English, and Literature and Writing. Recent graduates from each track have gone on to careers in business, education, non-profits, journalism, as well as doctoral programs in literature and composition and rhetoric.


In addition to our nationally recognized strengths in Modernism, American literature, and early British literature, in the English program of Duquesne University we have faculty interested in gender studies, the history of the book, ecocriticism, material culture, theater, poetics, and other interdisciplinary topics.
