Shaping the next generation of writers
The English program at UNH Manchester is a tightly knit community of students and teachers who do what they love, in fields ranging from literary study and teaching English to creative writing and professional writing in the digital age. Whatever your pursuit, you'll find a vibrant, supportive environment in which you can master the great traditions and the newest innovations.
English majors thrive in every profession that values communicating with power and precision. Here's what employers and graduate schools know: English majors are superb writers and excellent researchers. They deserve their reputation for asking smart questions, digging into the right sources, arguing ethically, and marshaling all the eloquence the language affords.
As the novelist Ian McEwan observed, "Imagining what it is like to be someone other than yourself is at the core of our humanity. It is the essence of compassion, and it is the beginning of morality." Our program helps you forge the connections that matter most, whether to others at home and at work, to local issues and global perspectives or to a life of meaningful work.
