In 1857, Lafayette became the first college in the world to establish a chair for the study of the English language and literature. Today more than ever, the English Department's curricula enhance the student's ability to read, analyze, and criticize texts, whether they are written, oral, digital, or visual. Success in diverse fields may confidently be founded on these skills, which are crucial to almost every personal and professional interaction.
