Department of Language and Literature

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.
