Assistant Professor, English & Communication Studies
Dr. Michael Crews has served as an assistant professor of English at Regent since fall 2014. He hails from the desert southwest, where he lived in El Paso, Texas for much of his life. He graduated with both a B.A. and M.A. from the University of Texas at El Paso, where he studied both English and Philosophy. In addition to his studies, he worked as a senior manager for Barnes and Noble for many years, ensuring that books were around in whatever vocational capacity he found himself in. In addition to teaching at Regent, Crews has taught courses at Baylor University and UTEP.
In 2008, he relocated to Baylor Univeristy to pursue a Ph.D. in Literature. While there, he focused on American Literature, and in particular on the novelist Cormac McCarthy. His dissertation is a study of McCarthy's literary, philosophical and theological influences, using as a primary source the author's archived papers housed at Texas State University.
