   I.     Introductory Statement:

This discipline is in the Division of the Humanities. English course descriptions follow.

 

English is the study of literature and language—its historical, imaginative, and intellectual development.

 

  II.     Objectives:

Objectives—The English program engages students in the study of primarily British and American literature of different periods, with an emphasis on various approaches to literary study. Students learn to discuss, orally and in writing, what they have read: how the author has structured the text and how literary language achieves its effects and directs the reader's response to the text. The major offers both broad exposure to and in-depth study of literature and language, as well as courses in creative and expository writing. English courses combine analysis and writing to teach students to be effective critical and imaginative readers and writers.
