Mission Statement

Literature and Writing Studies:  The English faculty is committed to a program that stresses excellence in the study of language, literature, and writing.  The program curriculum emphasizes intellectual development, critical analysis, cultural literacy, and global awareness.  In addition to acquiring a deeper understanding of and appreciation for language, literature, and writing, the skills and knowledge students gain also fully prepare them for graduate and professional schools, teaching language arts at the middle grades and secondary levels, and careers that demand highly developed abilities in critical thinking, research, and writing.


Graduation Requirements

Some courses taken for the minor may simultaneously fulfill general education requirements.  Please see the Graduation Requirements (bachelor's degrees) section of this catalog for information on the general education program.
