The UM-Dearborn English Faculty is committed to this goal by offering rigorous, comprehensive courses that contextualize language in terms of the various traditions and genres of English and American literature, the history of the English language and the critical skills necessary to craft effective expository and creative writing.Acknowledging the unique perspective provided by studying English language and literature in a part of urban America that offers vibrant multi-cultural experiences, the UM-Dearborn English major also exposes students to the future of English language and literature in the context of a global community both in — and beyond — Detroit. Therefore, majors in the English discipline may expect to develop a close relationship to the social ramifications of the written word and its potential for incorporating both communities and individuals into a larger, more internationally aware reading and listening audience.
