Before Camille Langston, Ph.D., joined St. Mary’s, she worked in public relations for a not-for-profit organization and also worked as a technical writer for the Department of Defense.
She decided to join St. Mary’s because of the University’s focus on liberal arts and the emphasis on teaching students to become civic-minded citizens. Dr. Langston specializes in Rhetoric and 19th-Century American Women Authors. Teaching rhetoric to students is her passion. She firmly believes students need to know how to communicate their ideas and teaches them how to be good communicators in a variety of situations and globally aware of the power of language.
She teaches her classes in seminar style and uses active learning and student-centered pedagogies. Along with teaching rhetoric and composition and American literature, she serves as the department’s Internship Coordinator and the University’s London Semester Abroad Director.
