In each year of their studies our students participate in both lecture and seminar classes, learning not only to analyze texts and synthesize information, but also to express complex ideas and frame persuasive arguments. Our award-winning teachers will inspire and guide your development, and you will have the opportunity to share your enthusiasm for literature and just being an English student through a variety of social events organized by the Department Student Council, ranging from our “Open Door” celebration at the end of the Fall term to the culminating banquet organized by the graduating class at which they present the “Fourth Years’ Choice” award to the professor they feel has contributed most to their undergraduate experience.
