We offer rigorous training in developing interpretive thinking and precise expression, which helps students in inventing ideas, organizing them, drawing deductions, and articulating them in eloquent and convincing ways. The program features the study of literary genres, rhetoric, and the poetic and narrative arts while focusing on the various roles literary writing and its presentation play in almost every aspect of human experience.
