English Department

The English Department at SUNY Collegeat Old Westbury is dedicated to offering courses and activities that challenge our students to become better readers, writers, thinkers, and educators.  

Majors in the department study great works of literature, learn how to analyze literary texts and their contexts, improve their writing and thinking skills, and explore the nature and beauty of language.

Because we emphasize small discussion-based classes, students receive individual attention, flexibility in pursuing particular interests, and opportunities to work with faculty who possess a broad range of knowledge and experience in literature, writing, and language studies. Faculty members in the department are energetic teachers and scholars who often bring their research and creative endeavors into the classroom.
