English Department

An English degree offers a way to increase your awareness of the wondrous power of language. Studies in English provide foundations in reading, analysis and self-expression. Through the study of literature, students gain appreciation and understanding of what makes written text “literary” and why readers return to great literature to provide pleasure and insight into the human condition.
