The CI English Program fosters reflective interpretation, creativity, analysis, and effective expression. Our students investigate a wide range of literatures, explore multicultural and international perspectives, write creatively and critically, and work with local communities in service learning courses. The English Program engages a variety of other disciplines, including history, education, the sciences, and the arts, making it one of CI’s most vibrantly interdisciplinary programs. Our major and general education curricula prepare graduates for further study or professional paths and ready them to take their places as informed local and world citizens.
