Literature, Language, and Writing

In the Literature, Language, and Writing Department at St. Kate’s, your voice matters — and we help you amplify it in discussion-based classes in literature, language, and writing. Together, in our programs, students and faculty explore diverse traditions in global contexts of social justice.

Our graduates go out into the world prepared to succeed at anything!
