Welcome to the Department of English, Speech, and Foreign Languages at Texas Woman's University, one of the founding departments when the university began in 1903. The history of the department is long and rich. With a Ph.D. program in Rhetoric, our department is a center for the study of literature, language, and writing. We offer a series of courses on writing, literature, and foreign languages. Our activities in classes, in the Write Site, and in our organizations, such as Sigma Tau Delta and ERGO, reflect our commitment to preparing and empowering students for participation in our society's discourses.
