The Department of English aligns the study of language and literature with the craft of writing, developing skills considered integral to education in the humanities and prized by professional organizations around the world.  Although the department concentrates on texts written in English by authors from Great Britain, Ireland, and North America, we also examine translations of texts from other languages as well as literatures in English from other cultural perspectives. Students may also encounter practices that are not, strictly speaking, “writing” at all, such as oral compositions, hypertexts, podcasts, and folk art.

In the first year, all students in the university take courses in the fundamentals of college-level writing and in the reasoned analysis of texts. Other English courses that form part of the core curriculum provide students with opportunities to study topics in world literature or surveys of British, American, and World literature.
