The study of English is more than grammar, punctuation and the canon of classic literature.
At Emmanuel, students studying English are offered an expansive, inclusive and thoroughly modern program with a departmental major and further concentrations in communication & media studies and writing, editing & publishing. Students who major in any of these departmental programs study the process by which we derive meaning from a variety of texts that are written, oral, visual or multimedia in nature.
The guiding principle behind all concentrations in Emmanuel's English program is rhetoric-that is, examining how we use language to influence the beliefs, attitudes or emotions of various audiences. Students who major in English reflect upon, analyze, and interpret literature and film, presenting their analyses in clear, cogent writing.
Health Communication Students Gain Pitching Experience
During the Fall semester, students in Dr. Mark Flynn's Health Communication course got firsthand experience in pitching campaign ideas to a client. The class "partnered" with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to create campaign messages for their new Community Ambassadors program. The students presented their campaign ideas to Dana-Farber employees Ellen Berlin, director of communications, and Sarah Gunn, community outreach director.
