English Department Philosophy

The ultimate goal of the English department is to inspire a love of literature and writing in students as they struggle with ideas that are fundamental to their human condition. Students have a responsibility to master reading, writing, speaking, and listening, not only to glorify God but also to communicate clearly in relationship with others. Students will learn how to discern truth in literature by being attentive to the various techniques and strategies authors use to evoke emotional and intellectual responses from readers. All literature will be evaluated according to the moral and ethical principles set forth in the Bible, and the worldview of the various authors will be compared with a biblical worldview.
