The Department of English and Foreign Languages’ purpose is to produce students with a Christ-like character who use the study of literature and languages to serve humanity by implementing a service- learning faith while carrying out the gospel commission in public and private spaces.
The English program is intended to meet the needs of students desiring a strong liberal arts background and/or superior writing skills for the job market, offering the traditional English major as well as a major in professional writing. The Spanish language program with Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA), provides students with an opportunity to acquire knowledge of the geography, culture, and language of a particular country. The program meets prerequisites for graduate school, and bilingual students find unlimited opportunities for service in the corporate world.
