Why study Language & Literature at EMU?
Language and literature studies at EMU offers a robust and challenging mix of formative classes in English and Spanish.
Our program is unique in its global perspective on language and literature, its cross-disciplinary approaches, and its emphasis on immersing students in conversation, reading, and writing. Students learn to exercise their linguistic skills critically and charitably.
Many of our professors have additional training in cultural studies, theology, biblical studies, and trauma awareness. Many have lived internationally and lead cross-cultural trips for EMU.
Our faculty mentor students in their development as servant-leaders who
*foster joy and beauty in the world
*engage all forms of communication media
*speak out against injustice
*generate new works of verbal art
*cultivate language as an aspect of creation care, and
*dedicate themselves to passing on their love of language and literature to others.
