Interested in the study of writing, languages and cultures?
In the School of Writing, Languages & Cultures, we value the written and spoken word and the many ways people communicate to different audiences for a variety of purposes. We study storytelling across languages and cultures — and we tell our own stories across languages and cultures, too. We regularly practice reading, writing and analyzing a variety of texts and in a variety of contexts.
We offer numerous programs to fit students’ interests and goals, including majors in Professional Writing, Creative Writing, Journalism, English Education and Literature as well as minors in Spanish, Writing and Publishing & Editing. Students find many Performance Learning opportunities, including working on student publications (magazines, newspapers, literary magazines), teaching fellow students through the Writing Center and language tutoring, and engaging in a range of professional and cultural student organizations.
