Understand yourself and the world around you.
English is much more than a required reading list. Every day, people use language to inform and persuade.
Through the study of writing and literature, you will grow in your knowledge of your own and other cultures, become a critical thinker, and learn how to respond to big ideas. You will practice reading, writing, and speaking with both purpose and clarity. At Ramona, we believe mastering the English language leads to a deep understanding of both yourself and your role in the world around you. We don't just assign writing, we teach it.
"We rely on the development of core skills - writing and critical reasoning - as tools to make sense of literature, culture, and ourselves. We want our graduates to embrace the world around them and engage in it with thoughtfulness, nuance, and empathy."
