The English Department at Manhattanville College offers courses in all periods of American, British, and international literature in English, as well as courses in creative and professional writing and in film studies. 


Strong reading and writing abilities are essential to nearly every career. It’s true that English majors become writers and teachers. They also become journalists, lawyers, politicians, and corporate executives. English majors gain skills that employers covet: they think critically and analytically, they know how to conduct research, and they can communicate clearly. 

Those talents are dear. You’ll learn them at Manhattanville. You’ll take small, participatory classes that develop your ability to analyze and interpret literary works, as well as film, in context. Creative writers hone their craft in workshop courses and contribute to the campus literary magazine, Graffiti, and the campus newspaper, Touchstone. The English Department at Manhattanville College also hosts the College's annual Creative Writing Awards.
