English & Foreign Languages

English & Foreign Languages

The Department of English and Foreign Languages offers two plans of study that lead to the Bachelor of Arts degree in English and the Bachelor of Arts degree in English Education. Minors are available in two foreign languages: Spanish and French. The faculty, 80% percent of whom have doctorate degrees, prepare the entire student body for written language proficiency.

It is the mission of the Department of English and Foreign Languages to develop in students a proficiency and an appreciation for the past and present structure of the English language and its related literature. We are also passionate about teaching students to speak, read and write Spanish or French, and cultivating an appreciation for these and other cultures.

Our goal is to produce English Education graduates who are culturally diverse, proficient in oral and written language, knowledgeable about major literary works and principles, and are known for their leadership, respect for diversity and academic competence.
