The Department of English aims to meet the needs of students with different academic goals – from those seeking a foundation for postgraduate work or study in English and related fields, to those who want a humanistic base for reading, thinking, and writing in a liberal arts environment. We are committed to engaging our students with the best that has been written, from the traditional canon of English literature to the marginalized and experimental.
