Liberal Arts
The Department offers majors and minors in English, Comparative Literature, and Creative Writing, as well as a major in Secondary Education-English (see Education). In the context of traditions of AngloAmerican and European literature, we offer mythology, criticism and aesthetics, genres and period studies such as modernism and postmodernism, and recognizable literary trends such as existentialism and romanticism, as well as figure studies . In addition, we also examine what we consider the inevitable connections between literature and the other arts, as well as include a diversity of voices, such as those of women and various ethnic, racial, and postcolonial cultures. All our majors under this heading involve students in critical reading and thinking, as well as writing both with clarity and imagination in preparation for graduate school, life and work, all of which demand an enriched cultural background, excellent communication skills, rigorous thinking, creativity, and originality.
