Program Description:

The graduate program in the department of English at UNC at Chapel Hill reflects the exciting debates and changes in the study of English in the profession at large. Traditionally, that study emphasizes extensive coverage of the recognized traditions of British and American literature; imparting to its students a knowledge of the generalhistory of such traditions has always been one of our department's strengths. Increasingly, the study of English also includes a concentrated re-attention to works that fall into other categories: our department is also committed to this charge. Its faculty has a national presence in such fields as African-American and Southern Literature.
