The mission of the English Department at Kansas Wesleyan University is to develop in all students and the community at large good writing, critical reading, knowledge of language and literature, cultural understanding, and aesthetic appreciation; and to offer students who major in English further opportunity to share in a rich tradition of literacy and to gain historical and critical perspective in the distinguished company of literary artists, critics, and other writers and artists, from antiquity to the present.

The department offers majors in English, English with Writing Emphasis, and English Education, as well as a minor in English. Most courses which apply to the English major are taught in alternate years. A Bachelor of Arts degree may be obtained for those students completing the requirements for the English, English with Writing Emphasis, and English Education majors.
