University of Dubuque Language and Literature

The Language and Literature Department helps students develop a mastery of the English language and an understanding of the aesthetic and moral value of literature. Through literature, one has the opportunity to plumb the variety of human experience, to be transported to worlds yet unknown, and to reflect on those dimensions of life that provide portals of insight into our shared humanity. For all students, the study of communication and literature provides insights into the human condition-- past, present, and future. Furthermore, such study develops analytical thinking and writing skills along with creativity and aesthetic sensibility, all of which are necessary in professional and personal life. Many students choose to combine an English major with another major.
