Welcome to the Department of Literature and Language Studies! It is our prayer that as you look through the Bethel College website you will be able to find information and links that can help you refine and pursue God’s calling on your life.

If this is your first visit, you may find it useful to check out our Facebook page where you can see profiles of current and recent students. Feel free to introduce yourself or post any questions you have! We also have a Twitter page you might find interesting.

For a brief discussion of program offerings containing links to course listings in the academic catalog, take a look at our Programs page. And on the Faculty and Staff page you can learn some interesting trivia about your future professors. Feel free to contact us with additional questions. And don't forget to read the latest creative writings in our new online journal, The Crossings.

No matter your decision on where to pursue higher education, my wish is for you to find the place where you can gain skill and confidence in whatever literary and language pursuits you feel are your calling.
