Divison of English & Applied Linguistics

The Division of English and Applied Linguistics recognizes the language arts as profound forms of cultural as well as personal communication and as means for reflection and expression. We believe that critically reading, analyzing, and discussing diverse texts enables students to begin to understand and to communicate their particular experiences and knowledges contextualized by those of the global community.
