Message from the Chair

Timothy Chin, Ph.D.Thank you for visiting the English Department web page.  If you follow the links at the right of this message, you will find information about our undergraduate and graduate programs, our faculty, our mission, and how to contact us.  Graduate students will find essential information about the comprehensive exams and other requirements of the M.A. program in the Graduate Student Handbook.  Links at the bottom of the page will provide information about how to apply to CSUDH and lead you to the online version of our beautiful student-run literary magazine, Enjambed.  As informative as it is, the web site affords but a quick glimpse of the vibrant programs in literature, linguistics, rhetoric and composition, and TESL that the English Department offers.  We hope you will visit our office in LaCorte Hall to learn more about the rich array of classes that we offer, meet our knowledgeable and supportive faculty, and experience our friendly and helpful staff.  If you have any suggestions about how to improve this web site, please feel free to let us know at:

Again, thank you for your interest. We look forward to working with you.

Dr. Timothy Chin
Chair, English Department
