The Department of Language and Literature offers a variety of opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom.

The Albers Institute at DSU consists of an interdisciplinary group of scholars, teachers, and devotees of the humanities at Dickinson State University. Administered through the Department of Language and Literature, the Albers Institute sponsors an annual humanities festival in the spring semester. Heart Rivers Writers' Circle (Circle) brings to the West River area significant, contemporary writers whose work interests a range of readers on the northern plains. Each writer gives a public reading and meets with students and community members to discuss issues germane to writing. By coordinating such visits, as well as by hosting literary events and discussions, the Circle serves as a resource for those interested in writing as vocation or avocation. The Circle, which supports all community literary activities, is sponsored by Dickinson State University’s Department of Language and Literature, DSU’s Stoxen Library, and the Dickinson Area Public Library. Women's Voices is faculty and student committee that plans and presents events during Women's History Month. This committee started in 2004, and each year's events have a different theme.
