English, Theatre and Foreign Languages

Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! 欢迎! Bienvenue! Acceptus! We live in a world of words. The means of delivery has changed over the centuries from vellum manuscripts to paper books to pixels on a screen, but verbal language continues to be the primary means by which people everywhere share ideas. Knowing that the people who will lead and succeed in the future are those who can use language effectively, the Department of English, Theatre, and Foreign Languages helps students become strong readers, writers, and speakers.
