Vision

The overall vision of the English Department is to promote literacy- specifically the ability to read, write, and think critically. This vision includes the nurturing of such technological literacy an information retrieval, and communication. Literate individuals can gather, analyze and communicate information effectively as well as think creatively and draw independent conclusions. The Department encourages these goals through scholarship and instruction in all areas of literature written in English and in the production and reception of a variety of texts, including academic, professional and creative writing. These goals thread through the Department’s wide range of programs and interests: from our contributions to general education, where students are introduced to the skills of critical thinking, reading and writing; to the undergraduate and M.A. where the focus includes cultural and literary traditions, as well as skills of analysis, criticism and written argument; to the Ph.D. in rhetoric and composition, where we are training the next generation of writing teachers and researchers.

Introduction to our Language lab

  • The purpose of our language lab is to involve students to actively participate in language learning exercises and get more practice than otherwise possible in a traditional classroom environment.
  • In our language lab, all students in the class can speak simultaneously without distracting each other regardless of the class size. Without a language lab, in a class of more than 10 students, each student gets less than one minute of speaking practice.
  • Text, images, audio and video can easily be integrated; teachers can alter materials to fit their requirements Learners can record their own voice and play back the recordings, interact with each other and the teacher, and store results
  • Teachers can intervene and control the learners’ computers via the teacher’s console, track of learners’ work, etc.
