The Department of Languages and Letters

Welcome to the Department of Languages and Letters, where we teach courses in English, French, Drama and Spanish. All of these disciplines focus on the development of critical, creative and communicative skills that will enable students better to understand and interact with the world around them. Now more than ever, the most important skill for any educated person is advanced literacy: not just the ability to read, but to read critically, to analyze, to question. Studies of languages and literatures give you the thinking skills that help you understand the manifold texts you encounter every day. Our faculty are dedicated instructors who also maintain active research programs, all of which keeps courses in English, French and Drama vital and up-to-date.
