Greetings from the School of Languages and Literatures!
We believe that academic experiences can be joyful.
Reading and writing are the means by which we begin asking ourselves who we are. They are also the means by which we begin to know the many worlds around us. The joy of learning moves us in these moments of discovery.
The philosopher William James spoke of the experience of metanoia, a heartfelt understanding, a transformation from within. Every language class carries within it the potential to transform you for life, and that is why we take languages seriously at SJU.
St Joseph’s thus offers each of you an abundant joy in learning.
Seize this opportunity!
