Welcome to the English program at Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, Iowa!  We offer an English major and English minor, as well as minors in Creative Writing, Writing, and Diversity Studies, and our students have numerous opportunities to explore their love of literature, writing, and creativity in exciting ways!  They publish their writing in our student-run publications The Paha Review, our literary magazine, and Perceptions, our interdisciplinary journal showcasing the best work from all Mount Mercy programs.  They meet professional poets, novelists, and essayists who visit our campus every year.  They study abroad in England and Ireland.  And they learn how to translate their English major or minor into professional success so that they’re ready to land the job they want with an English degree.
