Prospective students to the University of St. Thomas who are interested in the diverse field of English are invited to a behind-the-scenes look at what English majors do in their classes and around the campus.


Three hands-on mini-classes with faculty from our three English major tracks in Literature, Creative Writing, and Professional Writing:

  • Writing for Self: Making commonplace books with Dr. Laura Zebuhr, scholar of early American literature.
  •  Writing for Kids: Learning to write for children and young adults with H. M. Bouwman (Dr. Heather Bouwman), YA novelist.
  •  Writing for Change: Creating instructions for color-blind users of Legos with Dr. Fernando Sanchez, professor of professional writing.

Meet current UST English majors and minors, who will take you on a special English-centered campus tour to the Center for Writing and their favorite places in the library, as well as tell you about opportunities for one-on-one research with professors, internships, and student clubs.
