Department of English

The department of English offers a range of courses to all students, from first-year courses focusing on the basics of writing, composition, and literary study, to more specialized period and genre courses at the senior levels, In all of our courses, students will hone their writing and research skills and gain a body of knowledge that will help them succeed in both your studies and the workplace. Students will also apply critical reading and thinking skills, and add to their general education the opportunity to study many facets of language, aspects of popular culture, and thought-provoking works of literature.
