Our programs and courses focus on clarity in writing, advanced research skills and critical thinking through sustained engagement with literature. 

Graduates of our program are able to provide concisely written, compelling material for print and broadcast media. They write and distribute policy and communications in government, business and non-profit organizations. They also develop creative and effective approaches to education.

The study of English provides an ideal basis for further professional education, especially in law, business and the humanities.
