English, Humanities, and Languages

The study of language, literature, and the humanities is integral to every institution of higher learning. The Department of English, Humanities, and Languages fulfills a central role in Southeastern’s General Education Program by offering courses in English, Humanities, Spanish, German, French, and Philosophy.


Our mission is to prepare students for careers in education, professional writing, technical writing and communications, administration, and public relations. The major programs also prepare students to pursue graduate degrees in English and law. We offer three different concentrations leading to the B.A. degree – English, English Education, English with a Writing Emphasis – as well as an English minor. The Department hosts a chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the national English honor society, and also publishes Green Eggs & Hamlet, a student-produced literary and art journal.


The Department offers a minor in Spanish. It requires eighteen hours, and is offered online in accelerated format. A Spanish minor is a good complement to many majors, especially in the fields of Business, Law Enforcement, Safety, Medical Science and Education.
