The Department of English and World Languages offers majors and teacher licensure in creative writing, English, and Spanish. In addition, the department offers minors in creative writing, English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, film studies, Spanish for medical interpretation, and teaching English as a second language.

The department's programs seek to help students express themselves effectively; develop a respect for and an understanding of their own and other languages; appreciate and profit from a study of our global literary heritage; increase their awareness of and empathy for diverse peoples and cultures; discover the relevance of ideas and values found in their reading; and learn to think critically and evaluate wisely.

Departmental majors are prepared to live in a global society and for a variety of careers in advertising, communications, education, government, management, personnel work, public relations, and sales. Degrees in creative writing, English, or Spanish also provide undergraduate preparation for the student planning to pursue graduate study of business, law, or the humanities.
