A degree in English is the perfect springboard for people who want to change the world because language constructs our political, legal, and social systems.
The Department of English emphasizes the significant role that language plays in constructing our identities and in personal, academic, spiritual, social, and professional development. In the era of “post truth,” “alternative facts,” and “fake news,” reading stories, studying language, building belief, dismantling oppression, thinking critically, researching carefully, and writing insightfully are all the more important.
