Storytelling is an ancient art that has helped preserve valuable human narratives that continue to hold significant relevance and meaning – even amidst today’s digitally-focused generation. Narratives of love, loss, struggle and perseverance ring as true for audiences today, as they did when performed under the direction of the Bard and the reign of Elizabeth I. As a student within the English & Cultural Studies program, you will learn to recognize these powerful themes and derive meaning from their analysis that can be applied to support your personal and professional growth.
