Department of English and World Languages

By combining English and world languages, we offer a competitive, marketable education for the 21st century.

It is such a supportive atmosphere. The smaller class sizes offered the opportunity to have conversations with and receive guidance from professors – opportunities I may not have had at a larger university.

My professors did a great job of providing a balanced education. There were courses not just in English content, but also in education, pedagogy and a lot of field experience before you start student teaching.

PNW offered a perfect college experience for me. The connections and relationships I’ve made are my favorite thing about attending.
