Academic Maps Our English Program provides an array of courses unusually wide for a department of our size, offering classes in Journalism, Creative Writing, Film, Composition, and Professional Writing along with American, British, and World Literature, and Literary Theory. In and out of the classroom, we seek to meet the unique learning needs of each student and work hard to ensure that you are prepared to succeed, whether you go on to graduate school or directly into a career. We teach you the ways in which language shapes our lives, how to interpret and respond to the texts you encounter, and prepare you to communicate clearly, convincingly, and compellingly. In these ways, you become active shapers of knowledge and your world. Master these skills in our English Program, and you will find yourself prized by employers in almost any field.
