English Department Philosophy
The courses at Bellarmine are designed to provide a background of human knowledge and experience so the student, through effectiveness gained in reading, writing, speaking and listening, is capable not only of understanding and assessing personal desires, values, creativity and individual potential, but is also able as a compassionate human being to evaluate, to understand, and to become enriched by the experience of others. In all courses there will be an emphasis on both the grammar and compositional skills required for effective writing.
