The English department believes that skillful, self-aware reading, writing, and thinking provide a foundation for meaningful living. We seek to develop forms of analysis and expression that are both critical and creative and that help us comprehend the multiple cultural practices and values of the twenty-first century. Villanova English minors acquire an understanding of the scope of Anglophone literature as well as familiarity with some of the major genres of the tradition. A department of accomplished scholars, we focus on undergraduate education and cultivate in our students the analytical skills necessary for negotiating today’s rapidly changing world.
