Department of English and World Languages
By combining English and world languages, we offer a competitive, marketable education for the 21st century.
Our rigorous programs bring real-world experience to the classroom, building the knowledge you need to succeed.
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.
PNW offered a perfect college experience for me. The connections and relationships I’ve made are my favorite thing about attending.
