Vision Statement

The English department teaches keen understanding and rigorous mastery of language. Our students become aware of the power of literature to engage the emotions and to focus ethical, social, and political concerns. They learn to recognize the connection between careful, nuanced reading and cogent, robust writing and argument. They also learn to frame questions, undertake appropriate research, analyze evidence, and develop compelling arguments. These experiences serve careers in education, publishing, law, politics, medicine, marketing, non-profit organizations, and the arts.
