About the English Program

In June 2015 College Magazine ranked Purdue’s English Department 3rd in the U.S. We offer students skills in critical thinking and creative problem-solving; the ability to conduct research; facility with language and written and oral communication; respect for diversity; and the capacity to explain complexities as succinctly as possible. You can choose from four B.A. programs: English (focused on literature), English Education, Creative Writing, and Professional Writing.

Purdue has several student organizations for English students which include the Student Association, Haraka Writers, and the Professional Writers Club.

The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) offers a vast library of resources ranging from style guides to instructional material to assist Purdue students. OWL also is an international resource, with a Web site that receives nearly 100 million hits a year from more than 125 different countries.
