Heather Myers, '16

Altoona, PA
English major

"Through the English program, I’ve had the chance to travel and do research. I’ve learned to think critically and become a better writer.

My professors helped me get into a competitive graduate school, offering guidance, support and recommendations. I love them all – they’re awesome!"

Penn State Altoona faculty members teach and publish in diverse areas including comparative literature, professional and technical communication, critical theory and literary criticism, creative writing, environmental studies, and writing-program administration. Our faculty is active and prolific, participating in both national and international conferences and publishing in venues across the globe. Our faculty members regularly win teaching awards, attain grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and are the authors of more than forty books on a wide array of subjects. Lastly, our faculty is further strengthened by our annual writer-in-residence-an emerging author who shares new energy and ideas with the Altoona writing community.
