The English department challenges students to be passionate about words and to engage fully with the ways that reading and writing promote critical thinking and a deeper ability to see the world through different perspectives.
Critical Thinking and Creative Writing
At Alma, we want all of our students to develop as creative and as critical thinkers. All of our English majors take creative writing and all our writing minors are exposed to critical thinking and literary analysis. Lisa (’15) talks about her own experience in the major.
