Building on the cultural diversity and urban experience that distinguishes Wayne State University, the English Department seeks to provide its students with the intellectual tools and practical knowledge to prosper and thrive in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world, by teaching them to understand the power and influence of literature and other forms of cultural expression, and by imparting fluency and skill in writing and analysis.

In so doing the Department seeks to help the University meet its established goals in each of its five strategic directions: the learning experience; pre-eminence in research and scholarship; quality of campus life; an engaged university; and educational opportunities for renewal and advancement.
