From Here, It's Possible

The Department of English of Texas Tech University is committed to uphold the values of open, respectful discourse and exchange of ideas from the widest variety of intellectual, religious, class, cultural, and political perspectives. We are committed to tolerance and we will not abide any form of discrimination, bigotry, hateful rhetoric, or hateful action, whether directed towards one's race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, disability, citizenship, political views, socioeconomic status, veteran status, or immigration status in our classes. Our Department is committed to innovative teaching, research, and learning. We are pioneers on the frontiers of the humanities, working at the intersections of literature, linguistics, creative writing, composition and rhetoric, film/media studies, digital humanities, 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 of literacy. Our students enrich their academic experience majoring in English or Technical Communication, or adding our degree as a second major or minor. Our students enrich their lives, add value to their degrees, and work to position themselves better in competitive job markets.
