The Ohio State University at Newark


English

Welcome to English at Ohio State Newark!

We study English because we are fascinated by the power of words. We study English because we want to challenge the world around us, to see it with finely tuned analytical skills. We study English because we know that narrative is a dynamic presence in human life and the foundation of many careers. We study English because we need to become enriched with the blunt wisdom of writers such as Toni Morrison: “We die. That may be the meaning of life,” she once wrote. “But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.”

English majors graduate from The Ohio State University at Newark and create their own unique life paths, from social media to law to teaching to grantwriting and beyond. But we always have one thing in common: the strong foundation of community and education in a personalized setting of creative thinking and profound discussions.
