Faculty  

The study of English language and literature provides students with an intellectual foundation that will permanently enrich their lives and prepare them for a wide variety of professional paths. Our department features courses in British, American, and anglophone literature; in the art of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction; and in rhetoric and composition. All of these classes foster intellectual independence and help students to develop the skills of thinking critically, reading deeply, and writing clearly.

The English major is widely recognized as a core liberal arts degree, preparing students not only for graduate study in literature or creative writing, but for a range of careers – including teaching, the law, publishing, and business – in which the skills of analytical thinking and effective communication are at a premium. Whatever path they choose, English majors (and minors) will also have gained something invaluable: a fuller sense of the possibilities of life, expanded intellectual and imaginative horizons, and greater insight into the workings of human nature.

At all levels, our class sizes are restricted in order to provide opportunities for collaboration with other students and close interaction with professors. Our faculty specialize in a variety of literary traditions, critical methodologies, and genres of creative writing, and are devoted to training students in the most effective strategies for reading and writing.
