The course of study offered by the Department of English is designed to develop a student's ability to read literature responsibly and imaginatively, to foster an understanding and appreciation of our literary inheritance, and to provide the historical perspective from which to evaluate contemporary writing. Careful study of the use of the English language also should help a student to resist the misuse and corruption of language in politics, the media and elsewhere.
Students who complete the program in English are expected to have mastered the ability to express their ideas in clear and succinct prose.
