The English Department encourages students to recognize elements of literature, appreciate the complexity and coherence of good writing, develop a personal voice in their own writing, grapple with language in its myriad forms and meanings, and read works that challenge their perspectives and philosophies. A variety of texts – written, visual, and online – are used to help students acquire skills scaffolded meaningfully throughout the curriculum. 

Thus, the main goal is not to have students read a book simply to understand a story; rather, the main objective is to have students study a book as a means to some other, some greater end, such as becoming more critical readers, thinkers, and writers in a world within – and beyond – this campus.
