“Cabrini College is an extraordinary community of learners, a place where students and faculty interact in ways that promote intellectual and spiritual growth,” Seth Frechie, Ph.D., says.
“In the department of English we’re committed to the development of contemporary learning opportunities both in and outside of the classroom.
Our concentrations—in Film and Media Studies, Theater, Women’s Studies, and Writing—are among the most popular and challenging at the College.
In support of this curriculum, our annual Literary November and Literary April programming initiatives bring to campus respected writers, artists, filmmakers, and scholars whose contributions enliven our campus culture and resident life.”
Frechie came to Cabrini in 1997 and immediately identified with Cabrini’s education of the heart. Frechie subscribes to a mentoring philosophy that motivates students to develop ideas independently and to rigorously explore the social and ethical dimensions of their thought and actions.
“I encourage a high level of personal accountability in my courses and encourage students to develop a close working relationship with myself and other members of the English Department,” Frechie says. A writer and editor, Frechie’s work has been presented at the Association of American Colleges and Universities, the Council of Independent Colleges, the National Council of Teachers of English Conference on College Composition and Communication, and other nationally recognized professional associations.
Frechie earned doctoral and master’s degrees from Temple University, and a bachelor of arts degree from Kenyon College in Ohio.
His academic work focuses on American literature, creative writing, composition and rhetoric, and cultural studies.
