Welcome to the Cal Poly English Department
The Cal Poly English Department promotes the study of literature, language, and rhetoric in an effort to better understand the human condition. Undergraduate and graduate students learn to read carefully and deeply, to think critically and creatively, and to write clearly and persuasively. Within our interdisciplinary department we house specialists in literature, creative writing, composition and rhetoric, technical and professional communications, linguistics, film, and English education, providing a rich foundation of English Studies to our majors, graduate students, and General Education students.
