Inspiring Critical Thinking
The course offerings of the English Department enable students to reflect upon the language they use in their daily lives and to develop the reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking skills essential for effective communication.
Students read and analyze a diverse array of literary works, write in a variety of styles and participate in discussions and presentations. They conduct research at every level of study and develop an ability to locate and evaluate appropriate sources. Students are challenged to write from their hearts and minds in a way that will influence their writing for a lifetime.
