Language as Art
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or minor in English is a liberal arts degree designed with few hours in order to allow students to double major and develop a multiple array of career choices.
While many schools focus primarily on literature, students at Olivet will take course work in literature, writing, linguistics and visual literacy. Understanding the field of language arts will lead students into a variety of professions.
Students will have opportunities for experiential learning, whether completing a required practicum in business and technical writing or participating in service projects through our honor society. Recently, students worked to collect research materials for those studying at American University in Burkina Faso, followed up by a student and faculty trip to the African nation.
To further enhance their studies, students can complete the rigorous Oxford Studies Programme, travel with a group to England over Christmas break or present at professional conferences.
