What we commonly call “English” at The Centenary College of Louisiana is actually a collection of disciplines: it’s the study of the language itself; of literature written in the English language; of the critical approaches to that literature; of the cultures that produce, read, and reproduce that literature; of popular culture and film.

Overview

As a synthetic discipline, English at The Centenary College of Louisiana borrows readily from other disciplines, especially from those in the humanities and social sciences, but increasingly from the natural sciences as well.

Learning outcomes

The Department of English provides for students instruction to sharpen their skills in rhetoric and textual communication, in literary analysis, and critical appreciation. For its majors, the department offers a traditional course of study in British and American literature, augmented by courses in critical theory, creative and professional writing, and film and cultural studies. 

The majors graduate prepared for graduate studies and for careers in academe, print media, law, business and other professions where analytical and communication skills are important. The department's larger mission is to provide all Centenary students the means to appreciate not only the "examined life" extolled by Socrates, but also the "felt life" envisioned by Henry James.
