EN102 2024-5 LITERATURE 3.0
(BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
Scope Offerings
SCOPE As an introduction to the study of literature, EN102 provides Cadets the opportunity to refine the skills of oral and written communication practiced in EN101 and to develop certain foundational capacities essential to undergraduate learning and to professional development: critical thinking, close reading, empathy, intellectual agility, emotional intelligence, and creativity. By studying the most challenging and complex employment of language in its most difficult forms, Cadets confront ambiguity and hone their interpretive skills through the judicious interpretation of evidence. Rigorous immersion in literature enables Cadets to increase their command of the English language and to deepen their appreciation for the power and beauty of literary expression. By engaging with major literary genres Cadets cultivate awareness of the central importance of literature to their own culture and to the cultures of various regions and nations across the globe. In their encounter with diverse perspectives Cadets acquire insight into the human condition and begin to grapple with the ethical issues that are the focus of study in PY201.

EN151 2025-1 ADVANCED COMPOSITION 3.0
(BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
Scope Offerings
SCOPE This advanced course, into which the Department of English and Philosophy places select cadets, further develops the skills of accomplished writers. This course demands a rigorous and disciplined approach to writing through intensive study and research. It also demands attention to the nuances and persuasiveness of language itself. The course challenges cadets to push their writing beyond basic, first-year academic prose through an emphasis on advanced figures of speech and thought, through a deliberate attention to style, and through an in-depth approach to reading and research. This course expects cadets to think critically and to discover and articulate new ideas and original arguments through persuasive, polished, and mature writing. Finally, this course instills habits of mind that will that will serve cadets throughout their academic and military careers. Because this is an advanced version of EN101, cadets will be placed in EN151 individually, based on the results of a placement exam given in the summer prior to enrollment and by approval of the Head of the Department of English and Philosophy.

Finally, EN152 explores the power of literature to promote ethical awareness, cultivate empathy, and emphasize a shared sense of humanity.

Cadets are taught how to express simple ideas and basic needs, comprehend the language in everyday contexts, and read simplified texts and brief, authentic selections. In addition to speaking, listening and reading skills, Cadets learn how to write sentences, paragraphs and/or short compositions on familiar topics. Through readings and discussions, Cadets are introduced to the cultures and history of the Russian-speaking world. Cadets acquire a command of basic Russian vocabulary and gain a general understanding of how the language works, and they become able to apply that knowledge when learning other foreign languages.
