English and Foreign Languages

Read on. Write on. Speak up. Because words have power.
This motto reflects our department’s conviction that words and narratives can shape thinking, inspire action, and evoke emotion. Those who are most engaged with words can harness this power to make a positive difference in their own lives and in the lives of others.

Read on. Write on. Speak up. Because words have power.
This motto reflects our department’s conviction that words and narratives can shape thinking, inspire action, and evoke emotion. Those who are most engaged with words can harness this power to make a positive difference in their own lives and in the lives of others. More than ever, students who are able to communicate effectively—especially in multiple languages—are well prepared to succeed in the careers of their choosing. Through such coursework, students think critically, improve written and oral communication, and develop an increased historical and cultural awareness that fosters understanding and social concern, all of which enhances their ability to achieve both civic and professional goals.

The Department of English and Foreign Languages therefore offers a variety of programs of study, including majors in:

  • English/Literature
  • English/Secondary Education
  • English/Writing
  • Spanish
  • Spanish/Secondary Education

We also have a partnership with the School of Business and Global Innovation
to offer a major in International Business with a concentration in Spanish, and we
support the Nutrition and Athletic Training Department by offering courses in a
Nutrition and Dietetics/Spanish track.

Finally, for all students, we offer minors in:

  • English Literature
  • Latino Studies
  • Spanish for Professionals
  • Writing

If students are interested in minoring in other languages, particularly French or Italian, on an ad hoc basis, please see the Department Chairperson.
