Welcome to the English Department
Our language is a portal to our ideas. We use the English language to document our dreams and persuade others to see from our point of view.
At Farnsworth, the English department is a place for students to cultivate a sense of identity and personal power through the words of great thinkers, as well as their own. Advanced study in any field requires conceptual thinking and the subsequent articulation of those thoughts.
