Join us on your journey!

At the center of our philosophy is the ancient credo: “know thyself.” To us, the faculty and staff in the Literature and Language Department, that means working to educate the person and the passion through individual student care, a rich diversity of class options, and real world growth opportunities such as internships and study abroad. Our classrooms are everywhere – on campus, abroad, in the workplace and online. Our students succeed because we teach transferable 21st Century skills like written and oral communication, complex reading methods, research techniques, long-term project organization, and cultural competence. We create a nurturing environment that helps build a passionate resilience in our students because they find their unique critical and imaginative voice. Our students discover what motivates and drives their dreams. We seek to facilitate intense engagement with the human wisdom of the past and the possibilities of each individual student’s future. Join us on your journey!
