The English Department aims to provide an exceptional eduction in English literature and culture. It does this in several ways. First, our four semester program offer a comprehensive analytical and historical approach to reading and writing. Postgraduates, who earn an M A degree from here will emerge with a thorough understanding of the English literary heritage as well as the ability to think, argue, and write well about questions of language, meaning, evidence, from, rhetoric, historical context, and aesthetic desire. The skills learned in the English Department classroom thus provide an essential foundation for careers in law, business, government, education, finance, and media. The department's commitment to its students has been recognized with numerous teaching awards.

Second, the department is intensively engaged in original research on both literature and cluture, and represents a diverse and dynamic model of scholarly activity for its students. The department's scholarship has earned national and international recognition. Students who work with these and equally accomplished faculty members will be taken on an intellectual adventure that can be found in few other departments. The Department invites all students interested in expanding their intellectual horizons and honing their practical skills in reading and writing.
