The English program reflects the overall tenor of the College in its emphasis on the development of critical thinking and communication skills, the importance of integrated cross-disciplinary studies, and concern for the relationship between humans and the natural world. Courses in the English program represent the American and British literary traditions, approaches to creative writing, and a variety of specialty studies, including third world literature, science fiction, nature writing, and women’s studies. The English major also grounds students in the study of historical periods and movements.

Graduates of the English program go on to graduate programs and to careers in teaching, publishing, technical writing, public relations, or other occupations that emphasize the ability to write well, read perceptively, speak clearly, and listen carefully.
