The Department of English, Theatre and Mass Communication is one of nine departments in the School of Arts and Sciences. We hold one of the largest faculty bases in the University. We are primarily a service-oriented department which serves the entire student body through the freshman year and one semester of the sophomore year. Our courses range from English Composition and literature courses to courses in humanities, foreign languages, broadcast and print journalism, and theatre arts. Our faculty members represent a diverse and well-learned part of the southeast Arkansas population and professoriate. Our areas of expertise range from composition and rhetoric; British, American and African American Literatures; and creative writing to Spanish, French, journalism, directing and acting. There are twenty-one full-time faculty members within the Department. Sixteen hold a terminal degree (Ph.D. or M.F.A.). The department also has three full-time support staff persons.
