ENGL-395   Senior Seminar

A capstone course for all English majors. This senior seminar is designed to nurture Christian reflection on issues related to writing, language, and literary studies, such as the significance of story and literary expression, the relationship of language and meaning, and the ethical implications of language and story. Students also consider vocational opportunities for those who love words. These contemporary literary and linguistic issues are framed by readings from within the tradition of Christian aesthetic reflection as well as from reformed cultural criticism and theology. Significant written work is required. Prerequisites: English 295, Biblical Foundations I or Theological Foundations I, Developing a Christian Mind, and Philosophical Foundations.
