In English, writing and cultural production are both the primary objects of study and our defining scholarly and creative practices. Because of this, almost every course in the major focuses in some way on the analysis and/or practice of writing and cultural production. Because we take writing seriously, we have integrated it into each level of our curriculum as a series of graduated “steps” that teach students progressively more demanding and sophisticated forms of written expression including developing forms of writing across different media platforms.
