A degree in language and literature involves developing proficiency in a target language and a basic understanding of its linguistic structure. Students gain a deeper understanding of textual analysis and literary genres, styles and periods while acquiring greater knowledge and appreciation for other cultures.
The School of Language and Literature produces successful alumni who obtain coveted positions in business, government, education and the most prestigious professional and graduate schools. A degree in a language and literature complements all other fields of study and makes a graduate more marketable. The student experience begins with small, student-centered language classes, continues with a study abroad experience and concludes with challenging advanced level courses in the language.
Bachelor of arts degrees are available in French, German and Spanish. Students can also minor in French, German and Spanish. Language students are encouraged to have a second major.
Students who complete the undergraduate program will:
Demonstrate language skills (i.e., reading and listening comprehension, speaking, and writing) that aid in the communication and understanding among persons and groups of different linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
Demonstrate critical thinking and creative insights in the disciplined study of cultural media (such as literature and film) and linguistics.
Demonstrate fluency and coherence when presenting ideas in writing and in speech.
