The Department aims to develop each student's capacity for intelligent, articulate perception through a participation in the full potential of language.

The department's objectives are:

In speaking and writing:

to guide and develop knowledge and skills in the use of English, enabling students to think clearly and express thoughts, feelings and experience accurately and appropriately.

In reading:

to teach the art and encourage the passion of reading well and deeply.

In literature:

to introduce the significant literature of our culture, because in dialogue with great writing of both past and present students learn about themselves and their world.

In the experience of language:

to foster delight in the variety and energy of language well used, and so enrich discrimination as well as understanding.
