UMBC's English Department is a vibrant center for teaching, learning, and research with two major tracks: the Literature Track, for the broad range and diverse traditions of literature written in English, and the Communication and Technology Track, for written and spoken communication and the new information technologies. The English minors feature literature, creative writing, journalism, and professional writing.

UMBC's outstanding English faculty includes winners of the Guggenheim, National Endowment for the Humanities, and Fulbright fellowships, as well as recipients of the American Studies Network Prize, the James Thurber Prize for Comic Fiction, the James N. Britton Award for Inquiry in the English Language Arts, and Baltimore Magazine's Best of the Web award. The English Department is the home of the Shakespeare Association of America.
