The faculty of the English major at Bryan College approach each course with an intellectual rigor that grows out of our love for the Lord and our subject.
We expect students enrolled in our courses to develop that same rigor. To that end, we are both broad and deep in the treatment of the subject matter for each course. We want students to learn to express their ideas through clear, persuasive writing. We believe that a critical element in “making a difference in our world” is developing the ability to say what we mean and to mean what we say, and we place a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking skills which will make that possible.
The faculty believe that we are all called to rightly handle the truth and respect the text. Therefore, we are committed to providing you with a thorough understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects of language, literature, and writing.
We will help you see literature and writing through the lens of scripture and develop a Biblical worldview that will enable you to make wise and ethical decisions in a society that challenges the very foundations of life and language.
Further, we are committed to sending you into graduate schools or professional venues with confidence in your ability to pursue your goals firmly grounded in the word of truth.
