Welcome to the Department of English!

Statement of purpose 
The English Department affirms the college's commitment to the belief that reading and writing are central to any student's education.  Writing is a fundamental means of developing critical thinking, communicating ideas, comparing cultures, understanding experiences, arguing positions, reevaluating beliefs, celebrating creativity, and exploring the limits of the self.  Our aim is to offer students not only a chance to build specific skills, but also the opportunity to experience the value of those skills in a context of challenging academic dialogue.
