Communicate From the Heart
The English program at Sacred Heart University is concerned with the attempt to communicate, both orally and in writing. A variety of courses in literature, writing, speech/communications and drama is offered to develop skills for reading analytically, writing clearly and effectively, and expressing thoughts cogently, while providing a foundational experience in a broad spectrum of literature.
Selections from the wide range of courses within the major and its two concentrations - Literature and Writing - along with related studies in other areas, will prepare the English major for graduate school, the professions, business, industry and the arts. The department also offers a 3 + 3 Bachelor’s & J.D. Program, minor in English, and a minor in Creative Writing.
The English faculty at Sacred Heart are dedicated to the ideal of providing a solid, well-balanced curriculum for our majors. The curriculum balances theory and practice, oral and writing communication, and a common core with concentration in special areas of interest. We seek to share our love of the written and spoken word while at the same time preparing students for professional life upon graduation from the University. Our goals include:
• Coordinating our curriculum with the University's mission
• Continually developing our teaching ability
• Remaining current in our discipline
• Creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation
• Focusing on each student as a unique human being
