New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The English major combines the broad historical coverage of traditional English degrees with distinctive features reflecting the College’s liberal arts tradition. These include the study of rhetoric, the study of stylistics, and comparison between literatures in English, literatures in different languages, different art forms, and between literary criticism and cognate disciplines. The central aim of the History minor is to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding of the human past and to reflect critically on the complex, and often contradictory, information available to us now about that past.
