Welcome to the English Department at NIU! We offer courses in literature, linguistics, English education, film, ESL (English as a Second Language), and rhetoric as well as in creative, technical, and professional writing. Students in our department learn the analytical skills employers value, and they engage in conversations about critical issues. Our study abroad programs in Dublin and Oxford win rave reviews from participants, while internships present opportunities to gain professional experience.
