All undergraduate students must complete 40 credits in General Education. Designed to foster well-educated critical thinkers and global citizens, the program includes required and elective courses in writing, mathematics and analytics, science, foreign languages, arts and humanities, and the social sciences. Through these courses, students enhance their self-awareness, academic and problem-solving skills, civic awareness, and intercultural knowledge. The General Education program exposes students to a range of disciplines in the Arts and Sciences, which can serve as a context for their studies in their discipline. In addition, the program, and in general, the whole of the University’s undergraduate program, strives to enhance students’ appreciation of the diversity of cultural, ethnic, and professional settings in which they may live and work in the future.
The Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature program combines research-based teaching and a strong emphasis on engaged, experiential learning. We offer the best of the small department—its focus on the individual student and a passionate commitment to teaching—together with the varied range of courses that is the privilege of larger institutions.
