Within the liberal arts tradition, English courses integrate the studies of literature, language, and writing from ancient through contemporary authors. Courses in literature, film, linguistics, creative, and professional writing develop skills useful in law, public relations, government, business, publishing, teaching, and advertising. Students study textual analysis and interpretation, literary theory, ethics, linguistic development and multicultural literatures.
