The Department of English and Foreign Languages offers several organizations and clubs that provide you with opportunities to develop and showcase your unique skills. You will also build relationships and community with like-minded individuals.

The English Club

The Alabama A&M University English Club is an organization by students, about students, and for students. AAMU English Club members  participate in reading groups,  hold workshops and student-based forums, volunteer for  community services such as tutoring and reading to K-12 students in our area.  We even design our own custom-made club t-shirts! 

Our club offers students a wonderful opportunity to express themselves and build their resumes. Although we are composed mainly of AAMU English Majors, non-English Majors are also invited to join!

The AAMU Poetry Club

AAMU's Poetry Club provides students with an outlet for expression through writing, spoken word, music, dance, and other expressions. The Poetry Club hosts several events each semester, such as open mic nights and poetry slam competitions. Our club combines writing, performance, advocacy, and community service. We meet twice a month and we're open to undergraduate and graduate students regardless of major.

The Spanish Club

The AAMU Spanish Club meets several times each semester reviewing Spanish vocabulary and engaging in conversations using what we have learned. In recent years, the Spanish Club has had many students to join the club and realize that having a conversation in a foreign language is not as tough as they imagined it would be. In fact, they have expressed feelings of pleasure being able to communicate with people of different cultural backgrounds.
