Why Literature and Languages?

There is no life, no career, and no world untouched or unimproved by reading and writing.

From prose to poetry, stage to screen, fiction to graphic novels, and scholarship to script writing, students learn to read texts critically and construct texts creatively as they hone their literacies in oral, textual, and visual communication. Students take these skills beyond the major and the academy well into their lives as citizens and into their work and careers.
