As an English, Humanities, or Philosophy student at Midwestern State University, you will learn to better understand a diverse array of cultural traditions by engaging with writing, literature, art, film, and philosophy at a challenging and sophisticated level. Many students find that studying the liberal arts is a transformative experience which enables them to see and understand the world around them in new and interesting ways.

Whether you choose to focus on literature, philosophy, technical writing and rhetoric, or the humanities, our faculty hope to nurture insightful critical thinking, creative textual analysis, cogent argument, and a sensibility that is at once both analytically minded and socially conscientious. 

From ancient philosophy to digital media, from the close reading of a Shakespearean sonnet to an ecocritical analysis of Native American poetry, the Department of English, Humanities, and Philosophy has many courses that will help you forge your own unique path.
