English Department

The English Department is committed to educating students in writing, language and literature. In doing so, we hope to cultivate thoughtful, compassionate human beings, as well as equip majors for a wide range of professions. Employers in various disciplines are looking for English majors because of their skills in thinking and communication. But, beyond vocational preparation, the department seeks to cultivate in students an appreciation for the things that mark us as human: communication, analysis, discernment, and a love of beauty.
