Director of the School of Humanities Dr. Ruth Smith believes that many students underestimate the usefulness of studying a foreign language. "As with all of the Humanities, the question is always, 'Well, what are you going to do with that?' And the answer is 'You're going to do everything with that,'" Smith said.

ULM Occupational Therapy

The Occupational Therapy program at the University of Louisiana Monroe has begun working on a change from a masters to a doctoral program. In December 2017 the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors approved a letter of intent from ULM to develop the doctoral program.

According to Dr. Patti Calk, associate director of the School of Health Professions, switching to a doctoral program would mean many changes for Occupational Therapy (OT) students. The program would be expanded to include an additional class of students from 90 students in 2018 to 120 students by 2021.
