Preparing students for successful entry into graduate and professional programs or careers requiring high levels of communication and analytical skills
The Department of English at Lourdes seeks to challenge students of all ethnic, racial, religious and academic backgrounds to enhance their intellectual, social and emotional growth. The Bachelor of Arts in English program helps prepare students for successful entry into graduate and professional programs or careers requiring high levels of communication and analytical skills. Students are challenged to become knowledgeable of and to think critically about literary works as art form and cultural production. They learn to use language effectively to express ideas and develop informed arguments about literature and literary issues.
The Department enhances the intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual growth of students through the investigation of languages, literature and interdisciplinary study. This study heightens the emotions, imagination and critical thinking of students thus enabling them to meet life’s challenges with a better understanding of self and fellow human beings.
Lourdes offers various courses in literary study including American, English, Modern and World literatures along with courses in writing, research, communications, American Sign Language, and foreign languages. All courses are designed to help students develop effective oral and written communication skills, techniques necessary for critical reading and logical discussion, a grasp of linguistic structure and idiomatic use of language, familiarity with major literary forms along with their historical development and a deepening of critical and aesthetic appreciation.
