The English Department is the cornerstone of the Humanities Division at the College. The Department offers an ideal balance between creativity and critical inquiry that prepares students for an academic career as a scholar. The Undergraduate and Postgraduate major in the Department offer emphases in literary analysis, creative work and other developing areas of inquiry with the faculty working at the cutting-edge of interdisciplinary work in English today. The students planning to enter professional or academic job markets after graduation leave with skills allowing them to communicate, collaborate, and solve problems in a cultural landscape growing increasingly global.
