With small, interactive classes from award-winning faculty, we offer undergraduates a liberal arts experience at a large, public, research university. If you are passionate about literature, poetry, popular culture, film, or the craft of writing, come see what the English Department has to offer. We offer certificates in journalism and creative writing, a minor in global film, and many opportunities to experience literature in the community through Exhibit X, Poetics Plus, the Buffalo Film Seminars, the Creely Lectures, and the BABEL Reading Series.
Our graduate program is one of the most flexible and innovative in the country. We take particular pride in our Poetics Program, our Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Culture, and our working groups in everything from British modernism to ecocriticism. Our award-winning faculty is well-known nationally and internationally, and our graduates hold positions at a wide range of universities, colleges, publishers, and non-profit organizations.
