Unpacking Your Potential
Are you curious about the “big ideas” that writers explore through the literary traditions of your own culture and other cultures? Do you enjoy working with words and crafting arguments that engage with those ideas? Our courses allow you to pursue your curiosity about the ways in which we construct our narratives about ourselves and the world around us, and to hone your skills at developing narratives of your own.
Explore with us the intellectual challenges of literary study. Immersion in American, English, and World literatures is a central component of a robust liberal arts education and cultivates skills in critical reading, effective writing, careful research, and information literacy that prepare you to be both a successful student and an engaged citizen of your community and the world.
We provide an educational foundation, with onlice courses and face-to-face, that prepares you for professional pursuits in a variety of fields including (but not limited to) writing, editing, publishing, public relations, library science, higher education, government, and the non-profit sector.
Our graduates have transferred to such prestigious schools as Columbia University, Rutgers University, The College of New Jersey, and Rider University.
