The mission of The Department of English is to provide instruction and conduct research in writing, linguistics, and literature in order to promote better reading, writing and cultural literacy among Coastal Carolina University students as well as the larger university community.

To that end, we offer instruction in literature, creative writing, composition, professional and technical writing, critical theory and linguistics so as to help students acquire knowledge of literature and language and to develop the skills necessary for professional careers or graduate programs.

In order to foster this mission and serve a broad student base, the department of English offers a range of minors in addition to the major including: English, Creative Writing, Southern Studies, New Media and Digital Culture, and Linguistics.
