The Department of English, Philosophy and Modern Languages, located on the third floor of the Classroom Center, offers courses in English, French, German, Spanish, philosophy and religion, with undergraduate majors in English and Spanish, minors in English, Spanish and philosophy, as well as a master of arts degree in English. These majors prepare students for a variety of after-college routes: graduate study, professional school, and careers in such diverse fields as writing, publishing, government and foreign service, human services, business and education.

The department also offers secondary teacher certification majors in English and Spanish and a secondary composite in English language arts. In addition, English or Spanish may be selected as a second teaching field with other certification majors. The student who majors in interdisciplinary studies may complete elementary specialization in either English or Spanish. Further information regarding certification majors and interdisciplinary requirements appears in the "Department of Education " section of this catalog.

In addition to major studies, the department offers courses that fulfill core curriculum requirements of the University. Freshman English sharpens communication skills, while world literature surveys broaden cultural perspectives. Certain philosophy and language courses can fulfill humanities requirements, and foreign language study is part of the bachelor of arts option.

As part of the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities, the department shares in a high calling-to foster and preserve the art of human expression.
