The Academic Program

The UH Manoa Department of English (ENG) instructs students in reading as a form of critical thinking and in writing as an intellectual and creative endeavor so that students may achieve advanced forms of literacy and fully partake of the civic and cultural opportunities within society. The department realizes these goals by the rigorous study of composition, creative writing, and literatures in English through a variety of approaches, including a multicultural and Asia Pacific perspective that addresses the unique diversity of cultures in the Hawai'i community. English department faculty members not only are responsible for this instruction but also contribute to the creation of knowledge in these fields through research and writing.

The goals of the English undergraduate program are (a) to offer a comprehensive array of course choices as part of a challenging program in English literature, American literature, and world literature, one that is aware of our role and responsibility in Hawai'i and in the Pacific; (b) to develop and broaden the study of the English and American language itself; and (c) to strengthen the student's writing interests and abilities through a large number of courses in creative writing, expository writing, and editing.

The graduate program enriches students' knowledge of literature, composition, and cultural studies. MA students are asked to take approximately half of their course work in a specific concentration so that they begin to develop an area of expertise while broadening their understanding of other areas of study. The MA thesis or final project at the end of the program gives them the opportunity to do extended research and writing on a topic of their own choosing.

The doctoral program prepares students to become professionals in the field. Required courses are not its focus; rather, it offers students considerable latitude in course selection and requires disciplined, independent work on examinations and the dissertation. Candidates completing the program should have the skills and experience to function as critics, scholars, and writers in an area associated with the profession of English.
