Department of English
The English Department’s mission is to prepare students to succeed in an increasingly
diverse world. The department is devoted to an innovative curriculum that encourages
lifelong learning, critical thinking and effective writing. We teach students to see
textual work as an engagement with history, convention, culture and place so that
they can participate responsibly in changing regional and challenging global environments.
In particular, the department is concerned with Alaskan cultures, the North Pacific
Rim environment and the intersection of networked technologies and forms of textuality.
