Quality Education in the Benedictine Tradition
Don’t try to mold yourself into what you think a college student is “supposed to be.” Keep your mind open to new ideas.

The English Department at Saint Vincent College provides an atmosphere and a setting for students to continue the 2,500 year-old conversation about text, language, creativity and imagination. With literature at the center of the conversation, students pursue focused intra-textual reading and apply wider insights that cross national, historical, critical and disciplinary boundaries.
Students in the Saint Vincent College English department think, research and write more fluently about the canon as well as popular culture. Ultimately, the person graduating with a degree in English will comprehend language both as an instrument and an art, having explored the felicitous tension between creative impulse and traditional form.
