A major in English or a modern foreign language is the “Swiss army knife” of majors. Excellent communication skills are but one bonus that comes from studying language and literature.

Close analysis of literature trains you to think critically and prepares you for a variety of experiences, cultures, and human behaviors.

Intellectual curiosity and independent thinking are the hallmarks of language and literature students. The Department of English and Modern Foreign Languages and Speech Communications will prepare you for leadership at Jackson State University and in the global marketplace.
