The English Program has a strong focus on composition and literature while instilling intelligent habits of speaking and listening. Our first concern in composition is to assist students in writing honestly and developing styles with authentic voice.

Emphasis is placed on personal, technical, and analytical forms of writing as well as those skills necessary to enhance our scientific curricula.

Students will be introduced to the historical and cultural influences, which have shaped the present day world, in both the United States and elsewhere.

They will be assisted in developing and applying the intellectual and analytical tools of the social sciences to deepen and broaden their understanding of past trends, current events, and potential future developments.

While accomplishing this, all students will develop creative expression through their art. Both Art I and Art II are studio courses.
