The Mission of the Department is :
The fundamental mission of the Department of English is to develop students’ critical reading, writing, and creative skills through the study of various literatures in the English language, composition and rhetoric, and creative writing. The department committed to quality research and scholarship, generous public service, and exemplary teaching, working directly with students in relatively small classes to allow close attention.
The department believes students should understand the "meaning" of literature in terms of social, cultural, aesthetic, and intellectual movements that are also the provinces of the social sciences. In addition, we have several courses devoted to studying theories of literature. Several others discuss literature as a realm of experience that reflects aspects of the social and cultural contexts in which it is embedded.
