About us

The Department of English is a community of writers, critics, and teaching scholars.

We are guided by the understanding that language significantly shapes our identity, deepens our interactions with others, and enables us to change the world. We emphasize the interdependence of creativity, theory and vocation.

Therefore, our curriculum offers a comprehensive education in literature, theory, creative writing and professional writing in order to:

  • Enable students to understand and contribute to literary traditions in English;
  • Encourage students to appreciate and critically understand the many cultures that have embraced English;
  • Foster students’ empathy, imagination, and critical thinking;
  • Enlarge students’ awareness of the complexity of human experience and of God’s grace.
