Assessment of English Undergraduate Learning

Through an active and ongoing assessment of our program, we have identified the following outcomes that are expected of each student graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English.  We will continue to assess our curriculum to ensure these outcomes are being met.

UW students graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English will have demonstrated an ability to:

  1. read, interpret, and write about a diverse range of texts in English, for example literature, film, digital media, and popular culture;
  2. understand those texts analytically and critically;
  3. understand those texts on the basis of careful close reading;
  4. understand those texts through past and current literary theory;
  5. understand that those texts are culturally constructed in time, place, and tradition;
  6. understand how those texts inform culture;
  7. participate in the critical and cultural discourses of English;
  8. participate clearly and appropriately through multiple spoken and written forms.


Faculty members are committed to work together to achieve these shared goals and contribute to the academic success of our undergraduates.
