Gonzaga University’s rigorous English curriculum stimulates personal and intellectual growth. Rooted in the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm, our program values Experience, Reflection, and Action. Faculty and students engage in the practice of critical inquiry in the careful use of language, and we take seriously the study of how writing both reflects and creates our society.

The department curriculum represents the diversity of faculty expertise as well as the department’s belief that students should have more flexibility within their curricular choices. Founded on solid introductory writing and literature courses and covering a variety of genres, time periods, and theoretical approaches to texts, the English major now offers two areas of emphasis: a Literature Concentration and a Writing Concentration.
