English study is tremendously rewarding and has much to offer both the practical and the inquiring student because of its focus on the essential human endeavors of reading, critical thinking and interpretation, and writing. English study enhances aesthetic perception and engages us vicariously through literature with the perennial themes and questions of the human condition with the aim of understanding our own lives in today's world. Students study literary and other texts in English in generic, aesthetic, historical, religious, and other contexts, including the theoretical and interdisciplinary contexts the faculty bring to the courses they teach.
