Our accomplished faculty offers programs in English, Spanish, TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), TESS (Teaching English in Secondary Schools), French, professional writing and creative writing, in addition to courses in Chinese and German.
We pride ourselves on paying close attention to student writing, language use, and cultural analysis to help students prepare to work in a range of professions and countries. Many students complement their classroom instruction with internships, translating and publishing experiences, and study abroad opportunities that help launch rewarding careers and lives. We train more language arts teachers than any other university in the state, and our graduates also work in translation, publishing, business, law, and the ministerial fields. Our professors have expertise in a range of fields, as evidenced by their publications in top academic journals and creative productions in fiction, poetry, and drama.
2014-15 will be an exciting year in our department! We welcome our new faculty and celebrate the 200th anniversary of the North American Review, the storied literary magazine that has published leaders and thinkers like Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, and Kurt Vonnegut, among many others. Not only will we host the NAR’s Bicentennial Creative Writing and Literature Conference, but there will be events throughout the year. We’re also fully moved in to our new space in Bartlett Hall. Come and visit us! If you have questions, feel free to contact Dr. Julie Husband, Head of the Department of Languages & Literatures
