  • Creative Writing

    One of few in the country, the program gives students an opportunity to be taught by accomplished faculty members who are working writers through studio-oriented creative writing workshops in poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction. Students are provided a solid foundation of literature courses and complete courses in the humanities, the natural and social sciences and world languages.


    English majors who pursue the Bachelor of Arts in English degree take course work in literature, linguistics, and writing. The English major will graduate with both a comprehensive exposure to and intensive understanding of British and American literatures. English majors will become skilled writers who use language as effectively and precisely as possible and critical readers of literature. 

    English Education

    Students enrolled in the English Education program leading to teacher certification in grades 8-12 receive broad and in-depth preparation in literature, linguistics, and writing and participate in hands-on methods classes that provide real classroom experience for pre-service teachers. 

    English Graduate Program

    The Masters of Arts in English at Morehead State University offers students a comprehensive overview of advanced literary study as well as courses in creative and technical writing and linguistics. This program is also available completely online.
