WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH
Our department prepares students for careers in a variety of fields by offering a challenging curriculum that emphasizes literature and writing. Please visit us in our offices in Visceglia Hall to find out more about our degree program and to learn about our many co-curricular activities.
Each year we sponsor poetry readings, a theatre trip and a student colloquium, and we encourage students who enjoy creative writing to submit their work to Calyx, our literary magazine. Several students also participate in a variety of discipline-related internships both on and off-campus. For more information about our courses, requirements, etc., follow the appropriate links on this page or stop by our offices.
We are always eager to meet with our majors, and we welcome the opportunity to share information about our department with new students.
“A book is a silent meeting of two minds –the author’s and the reader’s. An intimate connection, that often meets our connection needs more than another human being.“

A Catholic Liberal Arts Education
At the core of a Caldwell education is our liberal arts curriculum, designed to guide students to critical thinking skills, appreciate diverse cultures, and acquire a moral and civic awareness.
Students develop the whole self as they absorb learning through our liberal arts core: the humanities; the physical and biological sciences, and mathematics; and the social sciences.
