Literature Concentration

The literature concentration in the BA in English Literature & Writing emphasizes interpretation, with knowledge of literary, historical and social contexts to guide the understanding of meaning.

As a literature student, you will thoughtfully explore both literary classics and contemporary voices. You will:

  • Study literary history and major literary movements
  • Explore critical questions about American, British and world literature 
  • Investigate representations of identity, race, gender, nation, sexuality and class in literature
  • Learn about teaching as a potential profession and gain tutoring experience in the university's writing center
