Through Here, It's Possible
The Department of English of Texas Tech University is committed to innovative teaching, intrepid research, and agile learning. We are pioneers on the frontiers of the humanities, working at the intersections of literature, linguistics, creative writing, composition and rhetoric, and technical communication.
We are 50 faculty, 150 graduate students, 300 majors, and 300 minors sharing the opportunities
and challenges involved in the interpretation and production of texts and the promotion

enrich their lives, add value to their degrees, and work to position themselves better
in competitive job markets.
