We believe that learning to use the English language powerfully and precisely within a world of so many languages and cultures will give you the tools to become a critical and creative thinker, able to analyze and interpret individual literary texts, while making enlightened connections with other works and disciplines. Each of our classes will help you develop an informed awareness of traditions and cultural, historical, and literary variations and progressions.
Simultaneously, intensive writing practice will guide you towards clear and elegant expression as you acquire professional writing skills within the cultural sphere. We champion intellectual ambition, creativity, and imagination. We encourage you to pay close attention to the written word when analyzing historical, social, philosophical, and psychological processes, so that you can explore the capacity of language to inform reflection on human values and societal differences and mobilize your creative imagination.
