What you will learn

We speak it, read it, and write it every day. Yet many do not understand how truly empowering an education in English can be. Through examining English literature from various critical standpoints, our students not only imagine other worlds and forms of human experience, but also learn how to become better readers, editors, and writers.

The ability to communicate and express oneself effectively is something highly sought after by today’s employers. Schools, businesses, industries, and governments are increasingly recruiting graduates with superior communication skills, and the Department of English plays an important role in preparing students to succeed in a variety of professional careers. Since most jobs have a significant communications component, English courses also complement specializations or further studies in subjects such as law, medicine, engineering, education, business, journalism, publishing, and library studies.
