Unlike many other graduate programs that separate language and literature studies, Signum University provides a comprehensive course of study in analyzing great literature that emphasizes the important role language plays in the stories we read, hear, and tell.
Our language classes emphasize the importance of regular study and practice through an instructional model that offers students plenty of personalized instruction and interaction in small-group settings, in addition to weekly lectures on language structure.
We specialize in classical and Germanic languages, including Latin, Old English (Anglo-Saxon), Old Norse and the Gothic language, as well as comparative philology.
Many of our literature courses focus on traditionally marginalized areas of fantasy and science fiction literature, combined with classes in medieval writings, folk stories, fairy tales, poetry, and other forms of literature.
We have offered surveys of literature from distinguished professors such as Dr. Amy H. Sturgis, Dr. Dimitra Fimi, and Douglas A. Anderson, among others.
