Indiana Wesleyan University's Division of Modern Language and Literature is happy to invite you to explore and consider our academic community and programs. Each of our majors promotes the love of language arts and the deliberate study, constructive use and creative exploration of powerful language.
Our programs are supported by 16 full-time faculty members with diverse areas of interest and expertise. Our division is housed on the second floor of a beautiful building that is named for a much-beloved, retired English professor, Dr. Marj Elder. Our faculty and students are inspired by her commitment to IWU, to her students, and to her favorite author, Nathaniel Hawthorne.
In addition to the traditional classroom experience, our programs offer seminars, workshops, literary readings, guest writers and lecturers, internships in the U.S. and abroad, travel courses, and employment for many of our students as Writing Center tutors and Language Lab assistants. Extracurricular opportunities include the English and Writing Club and La Amistad Hispánica (Spanish Club). Our Writing and English majors also produce and edit a literary magazine, Caesura, featuring the creative writing and visual art of IWU students.
