The Department gives two awards for each of our language programs—the Language Award and Academics Prize to distinguished upperclassmen minor or major in any of our three programs. Undergraduate research is presented in the annual Great DEALL, the undergraduate research fair. In addition, the Department awards the Undergraduate Research Award to the best research and the student is recognized during our departmental graduation ceremony. The candidates must be students enrolled in one of the EALL classes.
Class projects in many formats—research papers, creative writing, digital production, experiential learning—showcase EALL studens' achievements. Selected works are presented in the annual undergraduate research fair, Great DEALL, in the spring.
