The English Department offers a wide range of courses providing training in the fundamentals of reading and writing about literature. We also introduce students to various theoretical approaches, literary genres and national literatures. Our upper-year courses allow students to engage in more specialized studies of theories, literary periods, genres and individual authors. Our goal is to equip our students with the tools they need to understand, appreciate and discuss forms of literary expression across historical and national boundaries, while giving them the freedom and encouragement to pursue their particular interests.
