About the English Curriculum

The English major invites students to explore traditions and innovations in literary study. Students majoring in English learn to read literature from a variety of critical perspectives and acquire understanding of literary genres and historical periods. English majors concentrating in creative writing learn to write in various forms of creative and expository writing and become familiar with different critical perspectives on writing. A degree in English aims to instill an informed understanding of literature, a critical awareness of the interactions between literature and culture, and a mastery of the expressive and interpretive skills necessary for success in any career. Courses are conducted in small-group seminars designed to encourage vigorous and productive discussion in which all participants become active learners.
