Courses in the English Department are about learning to be observant and reflective readers and writers, thinkers and researchers. In other words, we teach core skills for a comprehensive college education. Educating students to respond with a breadth of knowledge and a disciplined imagination to the ideas of others is part of the English Department's larger commitment to a liberal arts education, whose aim, we like to say, is the creation of the thoughtful and engaged citizen.
For detailed descriptions of courses we currently offer, see the Summer 2018 English Course Booklet.
For information about admission requirements, courses, intake dates and more, visit the Program and Course Catalogue. Please note that, as of Winter 2016, students may now take ENGL, CMNS, and CRWR courses with any college language entrance requirement, including a grade of C in English 12. For more information about language entrance requirements, please consult the College's General Admission Requirements.
