The University of Wisconsin-River Falls' English Department offers several options for students interested in English studies. In addition to majors and minors in Liberal Arts, English Education, Broad Area English Education, Creative Writing, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), the department offers a minor in Professional Writing with Business-Government or Creative Writing options. The UW-River Falls’ English program teaches students to be insightful readers, thinkers, and writers. Students become adept in word-processing, publishing technology, and research methodology. They become life-long learners with an awareness of historical, cultural, and philosophical issues. An education in literature, composition, criticism, creative writing, and language teaches students to write effectively, to think critically, to read widely, to weigh values, and to communicate ideas. The English Department is also home to the national journal Literary Magazine Review, which offers our majors opportunities to research the contemporary literary publishing world as we house hundreds of literary magazines.
