In the preface of George Orwell's Animal Farm, famed writer Russell Baker refers to Orwell as a "man of letters." Not uncommon in the 19th century, this honorable title lauds Orwell's sophisticated writing and critical thinking in his approach to normative problems of the time. Most intellectuals throughout Western History have been painted with similar strokes. To be a person of letters is to research, ponder, and reflect upon the issues that our society faces with civility and grace. The University of Oklahoma caters to individuals that find excitement in such work with a degree of Letters. Simply put, Letters is a major that allows us to view the world in differing lenses in order to visualize the full picture. The three subjects that compose the degree are History, Philosophy, and Literature, they allow students the freedom to choose courses that excite them from region, ideology, or period of time. I can say that my college experience has been significantly more fulfilling than many non-Letter's majors because my degree has taught me not only to challenge my convictions but also my perspective. If you are looking for an immersive liberal arts education, look no further than Letters.
