Mission: The IU Kokomo English program educates students in the Liberal Arts tradition and prepares graduates for a full range of careers that prioritize analytical reading, persuasive writing, and critical thinking. Our English program helps students in the region cultivate scholarly and marketable skills that emerge from the close study of language and literature in a global context, a growing facility with theoretical approaches, and expertise in reading and research processes. As students become conversant in multiple literary and textual traditions, they participate in a culture of diversity that will advance them as global citizens and innovative problem- solvers for a complex and dynamic world.
