Students will be introduced to the idea that literature encourages understanding the complexities of the world and our places in it. Moreover, students will learn that literature is a conduit to diverse human perspectives, experiences, and institutions. This will be accomplished through the introduction and development of rhetorical and literary techniques and vocabulary in English courses. The goals of the English department are to inspire and teach a love and understanding of words and how they work, and to form critical thinkers, eloquent speakers, strong and effective writers, and close readers.
