The English & Literature Department offers a wide variety of fascinating and challenging classes in composition, literature, technical writing, and critical theory.

English students engage with texts in multiple ways and at multiple levels—reading, analyzing, and discussing literature ranging from the classical to the contemporary, but also producing their own critical and creative work.

The department also offers courses in editing, document design, and technical writing to prepare students to compose in an increasingly visual and technological world.

English courses broaden students’ cultural awareness, deepen and refine their critical thinking abilities, and enhance their skills in written and verbal communication.

The English department is committed to providing a safe and open learning environment for all students and will not tolerate bigotry or harassment in any form.
