The English Department encourages students to share their passion for writing and literature with likeminded classmates by taking advantage of the social, academic, and creative organizations hosted by the program.


The purpose/mission of the English Graduate Organization (EGO) is to foster camaraderie and scholarship in both academic and social settings for those who share an interest in English as a discipline and support the English Graduate Program at the University of Georgia. The primary purposes of EGO are as follows: to serve as the social hub for our graduate department and all students involved, to plan social events and help welcome new students, to maintain a social media presence, and to keep students engaged and involved. Officers are elected annually, and social events are funded by the English Graduate Organization’s annual book sale. All graduate students in the English program are considered members of EGO though participation is voluntary.


UEA LogoThe Undergraduate English Association at the University of Georgia is dedicated to the English majors, minors, and enthusiasts who study in Park Hall. Their mission revolves around the three C’s:

  • To foster a welcoming community and safe space in which English majors create lasting connections with like-minded individuals
  • To provide career counseling to English majors and career information about the marketability of an English degree
  • To celebrate the creativity of our English students through events focused on creative writing, poetry, literary appreciation, and more

The UEA strives to host a variety of events that provide services to English majors. Some of these events allow undergraduates to meet professionals who attained an English degree but dispersed into different professional fields.
