Featuring food, conversation, and a brief workshop about English Studies in our Department.
WHO: Attending ONE workshop is mandatory for all English majors; you cannot graduate with an English degree if you have not attended at least one workshop. We encourage you to attend in the first year that you declare your English major at UCCS. English majors are warmly invited to attend as many workshops as they desire. The readings change each academic year.
Alumni are welcome. Please contact the English department chair if you are a graduate of our department and interested in joining us!
Announcement: The Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 English Workshops will both be held online in Microsoft Teams.

WHY: Meet faculty and fellow students, discover what the English Department at UCCS has to offer, and make an informed decision about which emphasis or minor*--Literature, Rhetoric, or Secondary/Elementary/Special Education, Creative Writing--in English to pursue. The emphasis you choose will impact the courses you’ll take in the future.
*We offer a Creative Writing minor only.
