Words allow us to dream, to re-imagine ourselves and our world. They allow us to inhabit spaces we might not ordinarily inhabit. Explore the transformative power of language and literature.
The English Program offers courses in literature, rhetoric, professional writing, teaching, and linguistics. Our students receive a strong foundation in critical analysis that allows them to better understand the varied literary and social expressions of the human condition. Our program also provides students with foundational research and writing skills which lead them to careers in advocacy, marketing, publishing and teaching.
