English and Modern Languages

Welcome Students

English

The English programs seek to improve the students' understanding of the English language, to introduce the world's great literature, and to enable them to relate their Christian faith to their culture.

The English programs prepare students to be effective thinkers and communicators. It also prepares students for careers in writing, editing, publishing, and teaching, as well as providing foundations for journalism, public relations, advertising, government service, business and graduate work in law, library service, medicine, and theology.

One of the surest marks of an educated person is the ability to handle the English language with grace and precision. Indeed, skill in language is a prerequisite in almost any occupation or profession, and familiarity with literature is an essential part of a liberal arts education.


Modern Foreign Languages

The foreign languages programs strive to develop intellectually alert and socially adept graduates who are prepared to go into "every person's world" with their language communication abilities.  Equipped with practical language skills, students are also challenged to be spiritually alive to the needs and concerns of the people whose language they are studying.

In each foreign language course offered, from the beginning 101 level to the senior paper course, students deepen their knowledge and understanding of the history and culture of the people who speak their target language as they develop their foreign language communication skills.

Students are also encouraged at each stage of foreign language study to develop ways to apply their commitment to Jesus Christ to the situations of the people native to their language study. Thus, whether students take only the foreign language courses that fulfill the ORU general education requirement or choose to major or minor in a foreign language, all are prepared to minister God's healing power for the totality of human need--in a linguistically and culturally appropriate manner.
