A MAJOR in language or literature nurtures your basic humanity while helping you gear up for a useful, satisfying vocation or advanced professional study - including law or medicine. Full literacy can help you adapt in agile ways to the ever-changing world of the 21st century.

Minors in English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish

A MINOR in language or literature is always a smart choice because it complements every field of study. Businesses, bosses, and professional schools want graduates who speak and write well. The global character of modern life makes language study infinitely practical.
