The Literary Studies concentration broadens and deepens students’ knowledge of literature and language through a range of courses focused on historical periods, literary movements, the structure of language, and critical approaches to literature. Students learn to read works of literature in their historical and cultural contexts; they develop their powers of textual analysis and their critical vocabulary; they examine and question the values expressed in literature; they practice research methods; and they work towards a written style that is clear, precise, and persuasive.
