Comprehension and analysis of information combined with clear communication of opinions and facts are crucial for citizenship, scholarship, and employment. In our face-to-face classes, hybrid classes and online classes, Clark's English faculty, provide instruction that helps each student improve literacy skills and appreciate how language helps shape society and culture, and how various media and genres frame our communication. Finally, English texts emphasize diversity and critical thinking because encountering and engaging challenging materials prepares students for our increasingly diverse society.
