The study of literature trains students in reflective reading, theoretically-based inquiry, critical analysis, and effective verbal and written expression. Students are taught to analyze literary works as representations of literary genres and in historical and cultural contexts as well as to examine literary influence and explore literature through the lens of critical theory. Majors are expected to complete English 302 and English 303 prior to enrolling in other upper division major requirements.
Elective credits may be taken from any English literature, language, or film study course at the 300-level. No more than 5 credits of film study may be counted as elective credits in the English Language and Literature Major.
