In lower-division courses, students improve essential skills needed to understand and interpret literature and to express their ideas in writing. Emphasizing poetry as well as prose, these courses invite students to read literature within a variety of social, cultural and ethnic contexts.
Upper-division courses encourage a sense of literary history and tradition as well as an understanding of adaptation and change in cultural and literary conventions. With the freedom afforded by upper division electives, students can explore a broad range of world literatures to examine different genres and historical periods, or to nurture a specific interest through a series of related classes.
The Senior Project option provides a further opportunity for in-depth study in the student's chosen area.
