Communication skills are at the core of nearly every future endeavor. The goal of our English Department is to help students learn to read critically, think logically, and write and speak clearly. A strong foundation in vocabulary, grammar, and composition is built in the early years and reinforced by the study of words and literary terms in context and by the process of writing and revising. Written assignments include analytical essays on literature as well as opportunities for self-expression in a variety of written forms that connect with the study of literary genres—poetry, the short story, the essay, the novel, and drama.
