Welcome to the English Department
The English Studies Symposium is an undergraduate conference co-sponsored by the English Department and Sigma Tau Delta, the English honors organization. The Symposium offers undergraduates in English Studies a chance to present their research and interact with faculty and peers.
The conference, which was started in 1996, typically features two panels of student research presentations, a keynote address by an English Department faculty member, and opportunities to meet informally with faculty members to discuss topics such as internships, the publishing unit, graduate school, careers in English, etc.
