English Department


The English Department is committed in
forming students to be eloquent, creative, and critical thinkers, speakers, and
writers. The teaching of rhetoric allows students to skillfully and creatively
use the English language as a means for self-expression and communication. The
study of literature immerses the students and opens them up to a time and
culture seemingly apart, yet fundamentally similar, to their own reality. It is
the goal of the department that, with its instruction, students are able to
express themselves evidencing sound logic, clear rhetoric, and a firm ground in
humanistic values. Thus, the students are in the process of living up to the
Jesuit ideal of eloquentia perfecta.
