The Department of Language and Literature offers majors and minors in English, French, Spanish, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). English majors may choose from three emphases— literature, writing, and education—while our other majors offer teacher certification as well. A Christian world view is foundational to each discipline. Students have multiple opportunities to explore their calling through cross-cultural travel, publishing and presenting, attending conferences, teaching, and serving the local and global communities.

Current Student, Harrison McCroskey

Harrison William McCroskey is sophomore English Writing Major from Knoxville, Tennessee. He is currently co-captain of the Lee U Boxing club, a tutor at the writing center, and the copy editor of the Lee Clarion. He has also presented a paper entitled "Journalistic Accountability of Consumers and Producers" at the Lee Literary Symposium in 2019. “My favorite moment was Night of Champions 2019,” said Harrison. “It was Lee U Boxing's big event where Greek clubs sent their members to fight. I fought, won, ate half of a Little Caesar's pizza and played Smash Ultimate with my BoB buddies until midnight.” After graduation, he is considering graduate school, with a possible future in teaching.
