Languages & Literature Department Programs

English Liberal Arts (BA, minor)

The English Liberal Arts major leads to a B.A. degree that prepares students for careers which demand strong skills in critical thinking, written and oral communication, and textual analysis.  It encourages further study in graduate or professional school by providing quality education in three areas: Creative Writing, Literature, and Pre-law. The Pre-Law track is designed for students who plan on attending law school, and enables them to minor in an appropriate secondary field, such as History, Philosophy, or Political Science.

Foreign Languages (BA, minors)

The Foreign Languages and Literature program offers a broad program that emphasizes oral and written proficiency in such languages as Arabic, French, Japanese, and Spanish. In addition, it plays a major role in the promotion of language studies and intercultural awareness and communication. Through a well-designed curriculum, it provides students with a solid foundation for a global perspective and helps them acquire strong translingual and transcultural competence to be effective citizens in today’s global society.
