Literature Program

The study of literature engages students in creative and non-instrumental ways of knowing, as well as engaging theory and methodologies of the discipline.  Coursework in literature features inquiry and discussion based learning with a focus on critical and analytical reading through close reading/textual analysis. It also requires substantial development and support of ideas in written and/or multi-modal compositions.
