ENGLISH

Short Description

The Department offers an intensive study of the English language, its literature and the world-wide cultures in which English grew up and in which it has taken root. Students are given opportunities to develop their powers of expression in English; their capacity to understand language systems (linguistics); and their ability to analyse and appreciate some of the finest examples of English usage (literary study). In a planned sequence of required and elective courses, English majors are taught how to think critically, analytically and creatively about the relationships between language and culture, history, psychology, society and politics.
