Department Chair: Lina Perkins Wilder

As a discipline, English offers students the opportunity to experience the pleasures and responsibilities of the imagination. Our courses examine works of literature — and related texts such as films and songs — in their most important contexts: historical, cultural, linguistic, socio-political and philosophical. The skills students gain through studying and writing about literature prepare them to participate in a growing global community whose common language is often English.
