The Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Michigan has long been recognized as one of the top English departments in the nation. As one of the largest departments within the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA), English serves as an extraordinary center of creativity, inquiry, and discovery with a proud tradition of leadership in scholarship and teaching.

With over eighteen thousand alumni, eight hundred active students, and nearly three hundred full-time faculty members, lecturers, and graduate student instructors, the Department offers not only opportunities for study of all aspects of English language and its literature, but also a well-developed, diverse, and active community within the University.
