Field of Study: English Language and Literature, General
Description: Studying English will change your life. Writers know that telling a tale and doing so with compelling language can engage the mind, move the heart, and stir the soul in a manner like no other. Studying literature disturbs and inspires; it troubles and comforts. In short, the study of literature is a means of engaging life’s issues vitally and intensely.

Students have two principal interests in mind when selecting their programs. On one hand, they wish to develop their intellectual capacities. On the other, they wish to prepare themselves for future careers. For many students, English studies serve both of these interests, since they develop two broadly useful skills: the ability to read and critically analyze literary texts, and the ability to express ideas in a clear and well-organized manner.
