COL Open House — 10/16

The College of Letters cordially invites you to attend an Open House reception, which will be held on Wednesday, October 16 at 4:15 p.m. in the College of Letters Library, 41 Wyllys Ave.  I will speak briefly about the Program and a number of COL students and faculty will be on hand to answer questions.

The College of Letters is an interdisciplinary major in Western literature, philosophy, and history, with a required area of foreign language concentration, and a semester in residence abroad (usually in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Russia, or Israel.)  To learn more about the COL, study abroad possibilities, and the application process please visit the COL website at:

Unlike most majors, COL begins in the fall of the sophomore year, which is why application for it must be made in the spring of your first year.

This year the deadline for applications is Monday, March 26, the first day after the Spring vacation.  We have limited number of places, and our admission process has to be completed before the university’s preregistration procedures, so it will be important to apply on time.
