The study of language and literature goes to the core of much that is uniquely human--how people express themselves in their unique cultures, and the stories they use to preserve, reflect upon, and pass on their collective wisdom. The majors and minors we offer prepare students in numerous ways for a wide variety of careers and life goals, but the heart of our department shows more readily in the love of knowledge and the expertise our faculty exhibit in and out of the classroom every day, and the level and quality of personal interaction we achieve with our future graduates as students, advisees, and citizens of an increasingly complex world.
