The English department offers a wide range of courses in several areas of study: literature, creative writing, English Language, technical writing, and criticism. Gaining a broad knowledge of English and the English language is an important skill in a large number of fields, in such areas as teaching, editing, business, public relations, and creative writing. All faculty members teaching these courses are professional, well-trained scholars. Upper-level class sizes average between 15 and 25 students, and all students receive individual help and attention. Courses are designed for student success on the state required PRAXIS exam for teachers.
Unlike many schools, Lindenwood University's English Program takes a traditional approach. We believe students should be familiar with the classical and modern canon, as well as with traditional literary periods. In keeping with this belief, we offer courses in the following periods:
