The study of literature and the practice of expository and creative writing strengthen important skills while engaging students in significant historical, ethical and aesthetic debates. Students who study literature learn to read critically, form interpretations, and make arguments based on evidence. Students who study writing learn to express themselves clearly, concisely and creatively while also perfecting their editing and revision skills. Students who pursue the minor in English will graduate with an increased command of language and with incisive critical skills that will serve them well in their chosen career or post-graduate work.
