Chadron offers a wonderful setting for the study of English and the Humanities, with abundant beauty, natural resources, and open spaces to help open our minds. Many of our English major course offerings, such as Great Plains Literature, Literature Across Borders, and Environmental Literature have been developed with an eye towards the natural spaces of the High Plains where we live, teach, and learn. Our unique partnership with the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center offers further opportunities to read and write within a regional and environmental context.
Chadron State College’s English, Humanities, and Philosophy courses in areas such as feminist and multicultural literature, Chinese philosophy, film studies, philosophy of love and desire, creative writing, rhetoric, and writing instruction all offer many opportunities for our students to move outside of their comfort zones and to explore new worlds of understanding.
Our program provides small class settings with close interaction between the scholars in our program to our students. We emphasize innovative instruction and scholarship (our faculty members publish and keep current in their fields of expertise), and we are dedicated to a high level of academic achievement in our students.
Beyond the walls of classrooms, Sigma Tau Delta (our English honorary society) hosts a variety of reading, writing and performance events throughout the year that energize the region and draw a large and varied mix of voices and talents.
