English Program Overview

The English program offers a major program broad enough to provide a sound basis in literature (British, American, and World), in writing (critical, professional, and creative), and in the history and structure of the English language.

The curriculum is designed to develop a variety of skills: reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, computer use, and research.

The goals are breadth and depth of learning, development of aesthetic awareness, and preparation for graduate study or for careers in teaching, writing, and other professions. Students may choose one of three concentrations: literature, writing, education.
