Study in the English department today embraces literature, creative and expository writing, and the nature and workings of language. Students in the department's programs can learn to read with pleasure and understanding, to write with grace, clarity and force, and to think with greater penetration and breadth. With these accomplishments, students are prepared for lives and work in which their power to understand, read, write and communicate will serve themselves and others, some specifically in careers in writing or teaching, some in professions of law, medicine, administration or almost any other field. English studies center on the reading of what people have said, sung or written about their lives, their desires and the whole experience of being human. Literature is a great inheritance, a tradition that reaches back through the centuries, but it is also continually growing and changing. New theories about literature, and new and rediscovered literature itself, renew the ancient functions of literature to reflect, support and enhance the lives of the men and women who read it. Through an active and ongoing assessment of our program, we have identified the following outcomes that are expected of each student graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English. We will continue to assess our curriculum to ensure these outcomes are being met: UW students graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English will have demonstrated an ability to: 1. Read, interpret, and write about a diverse range of texts in English, for example literature, film, digital media, and popular culture; 2. Understand those texts analytically and critically; 3. Understand those texts on the basis of careful close reading; 4. Understand those texts through past and current literary theory; 5. Understand that those texts are culturally constructed in time, place, and tradition; 6. Understand how those texts inform culture;7. Participate in the critical and cultural discourses of English; 8. Participate clearly and appropriately through multiple spoken and written forms.
