Southwestern’s English Department prepares students for a life of engaged, critical thinking by studying the literature and cultures of the English-speaking world.
Reading, discussing and writing about texts past and present, students gain a deepened understanding of literature’s role in shaping and reflecting society. They learn skills of interpretation, analysis, research and writing, whose applications and value span a broad spectrum of personal and professional pursuits.
