Core Writing at Fairfield University


We live in a world of words - written, spoken, read, recited, analyzed, debated. In the English Department, students learn to appreciate the inherent value of reading and writing, to value the beauty and power of language. At the same time, our students are trained to sharpen their skills for an ever-competitive job market by developing the ability to write clearly and persuasively, to think critically and creatively, and to engage in thoughtful analysis.
