Visiting Writers

Our English program combines creativity with purpose.  We guide students to write and speak clearly, to think critically, to research effectively, and to apply knowledge to real-world situations.  Our innovative classes include editing and publishing, environmental literature, and medical humanities. We also collaborate with the Literary Arts Institute to bring nationally recognized authors into our classrooms and encourage our students to become authors themselves. As a result, our alumni thrive in a wide variety of careers including editing and publishing, teaching, law, medicine, counseling, software design, and communications and marketing.
