We believe studies in the Humanities lead to an understanding and an appreciation of life in all its dimensions. The Department of English and Modern Languages at West Liberty University encourages this well-rounded perspective in its students as they develop into active and conscientious professionals in their fields.

Being a student in our department not only means having opportunities to expand your studies and your horizons, it also means having a supportive faculty who challenge you to be your best. Our faculty members help you develop new skills while fine-tuning the ones you already have. Our professors exemplify the broad spectrum of opportunities we offer, specializing in literary fields such as American, Children’s, Medieval, and Victorian. Other teachers’ research and teaching are in areas such as English as a Second Language, Foreign Languages, Graphic Narratives, and Linguistics. Whatever your interests may be, we have a teacher to help you develop them into a career. Ours is a close department with a caring faculty who will help you become the best in your field.
