Department of English, Humanities and Foreign Languages

The Department of English, Humanities and Foreign Languages is one of nine departments in the School of Arts and Sciences. We hold one of the largest faculty bases in the University. We are primarily a service-oriented department which serves the entire student body through the freshman year and one semester of the sophomore year. Our courses range from English Composition and literature courses to courses in humanities and foreign languages. Our faculty members represent a diverse and well-learned part of the southeast Arkansas population and professoriate. Our areas of expertise range from composition and rhetoric; British, American and African American Literatures; and creative writing to Spanish, and French.
The Department operates the Viralene J. Coleman Computerized Writing Center. The Center offers individualized help with writing. Peer tutors as well as English faculty are available to meet with students to discuss their writing. Tutors can assist with matters ranging from grammar, spelling, diction, and punctuation to broader concerns such as focus, development, organization, style, and documentation.
The Writing Center offers a number of services, including:

* Tutorial Conferences
* Drop-in Assistance
* Resources

The Writing Center is located in Corbin Hall, Room 105. Hours of operation are Monday - Friday, 8:30 am until 7:00 pm.
