About This Department

Creative expression through literature, film, dance, music, poetry, drama, or the visual arts is a powerful form of communication. 

The Department of English and Cultural Studies offers courses that allow exploration of the deeper meanings of these forms to cultivate the understanding and skills critical to success in a complex, multicultural world. Through this investigation, students learn to think beyond their own experience and to understand how their ideas and actions shape the world they live in. 

The department offers a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Literary and Cultural Studies, as well as a variety of concentrations and minors.
