"Clemson English encourages students to "choose their own adventure," so whether you're working toward your dream job, graduate school, or some undefined future, Clemson English will give you the skills and resources to get there."

Gabrielle Nugent

“Graduate school was as demanding as it was rewarding; as challenging as it was fulfilling. Spending two years steeped in the process of reading, questioning, researching, and writing has profoundly altered my sense of myself and how I move through the world. I am a more educated, aware, and engaged citizen than I was before attending graduate school.”
