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 Art History minor is to train you to look closely at works of art, architecture and design, and to acquire knowledge and understanding of their aesthetic, cultural and historical contexts.
