Tackle critical and complex issues

The English Department offers a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses to meet the needs of students with diverse interests and academic and professional backgrounds. By studying literature, rhetoric, composition, and critical theory, students in the English Department acquire experience in intertextual and cross-disciplinary inquiry across many cultures and historical periods. They learn critical approaches to texts and issues that enable them to interpret and compare positions; to read closely, critically, and with empathy; to conduct research; to weigh evidence; and to write with insight and expertise.
