McNeese’s Department of English and Foreign Languages encourages active engagement in research and creative work, and our renowned faculty are committed to serving the intellectual and cultural needs of our students.

English courses give the training necessary for effective writing and correct speaking, provide a well-rounded knowledge of the English language, encourage critical thinking, develop a perceptive approach to literature and help in the selection of human values that will enrich the intellectual life of students and increase their success.

Courses in foreign languages afford students the opportunity for understanding, speaking, reading and writing in languages other than their native tongue, acquaint students with the important non-English literature of the world and introduce individuals to the nature and structure of foreign languages as important parts of the world’s cultural heritage.
