Lauren G. Rich, Ph.D.
The English program at Grace provided me a tight-knit, supportive, and personal community of learning, and it was exciting to have new faculty coming in and further enriching the department. Beyond offering students a variety of literary experiences, the faculty consistently made themselves available to me as I was searching for a vocational path after graduation. Since entering graduate school, I still reach out to them and they're always generous with their time and insight.Stuart Mullet, (BA 18), MA/Ph.D. in English, University of Mississippi

Education with a Biblical Worldview
At the heart of a Grace education are academically challenging courses that are specifically designed to foster a thirst for character, competence, and service within the hearts and minds of our students.
As soon as I had decided to become an English Major, I most greatly felt valued and accepted by both my peers and professors. Their support and confidence in me have allowed me to venture outside of my comfort zone and experience life in new and exciting ways. Whether you wish to become an English major, or simply wish to participate in our events, there is a spot for you here in the English program.Kyela Seals
