Welcome to the Vassar English department, a diverse group of intellectually wide-ranging, and constantly evolving teachers, scholars, and writers as well as one of the largest and most engaged groups of majors at Vassar.

Whether you are interested in the course streams and correlate sequences that let students craft diverse, multidisciplinary courses of study; or want to learn about the prizes for writers and scholars sponsored by the department; or want to learn what courses we accept toward our major from other departments and languages; or simply want to explore our creative writing program or any other part of our rich, changing curriculum, this is where to start.
