English - Collection Development Profile






Purpose of degree programs

To provide undergraduate students with a basic foundation in literary history as well as oral and written verbal skills.  Graduate work in English is devoted primarily, though not exclusively, to preparing students to become teachers and scholars at the secondary and college level through an intensive program emphasizing reading and critical reflection upon the depth and range of literary texts written in English. The aims of the graduate program also include helping students to becoming more knowledgeable about literary periods and genres, knowing where to locate scholarly references and resources, and systematically surveying the criticism on specific subjects.
