Ferris State University Big Rapids MI College

Department of Languages and Literature

The Department of Languages and Literature provides a strong and broad-based education in writing, literature, linguistics, and modern languages through an array of majors, minors, and general education courses. We cultivate an appreciation of languages and literatures, enriching the communities we serve and preparing students to thrive in an increasingly complex and diverse society.

Faculty offer courses stressing cultural studies, international literature and issues, foreign languages, children's and adolescent literature, minority literatures, and women's studies. In supporting Ferris's degree granting programs, courses in journalism, technical communication, written communication, and languages are designed to specifically support particular programs on the Ferris campus.

The faculty also offer a number of other opportunities for students, faculty, and the greater FSU community. These include: a faculty colloquium series, a literary journal/writing contest, a newsletter dedicated to online teaching and learning, and our student newspaper the Torch. The department is heavily involved in supporting writing teachers and student writers. We are home to the Crossroads Writing Project and also have a full-service Writing Center.
