GIVING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH
In this time of great social unrest and change, the urgency of the humanities is ever more clear. We affirm our shared humanity through storytelling, creative expression, and the capacity for self-reflection. In the Department of English at MSU, our goal is to center student experiences and equip students to think critically and creatively about a world of enormous complexity. Through the study and creative production of literature, film, and culture, we equip students with the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind essential to ethical participation in a world that is diverse, inclusive and interconnected.
Our faculty’s cutting-edge work in Literary Studies, Creative Writing, Film Studies, and English Education crosses traditional boundaries of discipline, period, and nation. We teach novels and hip-hop, comics and experimental poetry, silent cinema and digital media. Our students experiences in our Department testify to the transformative effect of English and the humanities on their lives. Your contribution will help enrich those experiences and support the Department’s research, teaching and outreach missions.
