Liberal Learning Goals

Expand your reading skills

Studying written texts, interpreting graphs, and evaluating systems and codes are all forms of analysis that belong to the more general category of "reading." Learning how to read closely makes you aware of the complex nature of expression itself, where the mode of expression is as important as what is expressed. Gaining experience with close reading--across many genres--may be one of the most important things you will learn to do in your four years at Brown.
