Program Outcomes: 

Interpretive and Communicative Skills

English graduates employ critical reading strategies, disciplinary writing expertise, and sophisticated analytical skills in their written and oral communication.

Interpretive and Communicative Applications

English graduates translate the skills of the humanistic tradition, including critical inquiry, scholarly research, communication, and creativity, to professional environments and narrate the value of these skills to prospective employers.

Interpretive and Communicative Contexts

English graduates know how to trace the development of literary traditions, investigate authors, and differentiate genres, and they know how to discuss disciplinary methodologies and scholarly conversations; they use these contexts to frame their written, oral, and visual work.

Interpretive and Communicative Ethics

English graduates embrace literature and writing as sources of wisdom, spiritual insight, and aesthetic pleasure; as mediums for encountering and reflecting upon the diversity of human experience; and as guides for building relation and discerning value.
