The literature concentration allows students to choose from a rich array courses that reflect the changing spheres of American, British, and World fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction.
We emphasize how the literature is both firmly rooted in the time in which it was composed and alive and ever-evolving. Even Homer is shifting after students have read James Joyce, Ezra Pound, or Derek Walcott. Students have freedom to choose the courses they desire to focus upon. Special Topics courses are offered nearly every semester such as “Literature and Psychology,” “Heaven and Hell in Literature and the Bible,” and “Contemporary Latin-American Literature.” Each course offers instruction in how to read a text. This honing of analytical skills is excellent training for almost any job in which a person must comprehend, analyze, and communicate complex information.
The Literature concentration is offered through the English major.
