Quality Education in the Benedictine Tradition
I love it when students raise challenging questions in class and present new ideas.

The School of Humanities and Fine Arts
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.
