Our faculty members are well-educated, experienced, and versatile. We have areas of scholarly specialization and publish in our fields, yet teach, with equal facility, introductory courses and more advanced courses in language and literature. Many of us have been nominated for or received teaching awards; our classes tend to be small, student-centered, and discussion-based.
