English

"English" has become the term used to describe perhaps the greatest variety of courses offered at Notre Dame.  "English" is required during all four years.  A student selecting courses within the Notre Dame English curriculum receives exposure to multiple literary selections, from poetry to prose, from medieval to modern.   Themes range from the historical perspective of the early American writer to the psychological alienation of the individual struggling with the complexities of twenty-first century global society.

Inherent in the understanding of literature are verbal and written expression.   Within each course, language, spoken and written, is an integral concern of the English Department faculty.  From the emphasis upon correct grammatical usage to the development of effective creative and analytical composition, students are encouraged to see the correlation among all facets of this most important discipline termed "English."

Students enter Notre Dame with a diversity of needs.  The English curriculum offers to each of them a course suited to the individual student at his or her level of development.  Moving students toward their potentials with the English language is the goal of the "English" faculty.
