About the Department of English

The Department of English offers students a solid grounding in literature, writing, and speech.  Among the English Department faculty are several nationally recognized scholars, officers of professional organizations, and noted creative writers.

The English Literary Guild is the English majors’ association which sponsors activities for those interested in literary scholarship and creativity. The Lambda Iota Tau Literary Honor Society is also sponsored within the department for majors with high academic achievement. The department gives students a chance to submit their scholarship and creative writing to local and national journals and contests. CAKE, a literary journal, was founded within the department.  Additionally, the English Department currently sponsors a University-wide fiction and poetry contest.

FAMU’s English program offers an English major, an English Education major, and a writing minor.  The program offers courses in traditional American and English literature along with many courses in modern world literatures.  Students may elect to enroll in several creative writing courses which students from many areas of the campus find inspiring.

We encourage students of all disciplines to enroll in upper level literature and writing courses so that they may experience the best in literary achievement while enhancing their critical thinking ability and their appreciation of literature.

Cordially,

Dr. Yakini Belinda Kemp, Chair
Department of English
