English, Literature and Culture Concentration, B.A.

The Literature and Culture Concentration in the Bachelor of Arts in English is offered through the College of Liberal Arts at 澳门六合彩规律论坛. Literature and Culture gives students an interdisciplinary context, helping prepare them to engage with different aspects of popular and intellectual culture.
This program considers the role and impact of literature within various cultures around the world and touches on topics such as major British writers, early American literature, native American literature, multicultural literature, early women writers, black women as writers, children's literature, folklore, the relationship of gender in writing, science fiction, and linguistics.

In the Literature and Culture Concentration, students can:

  • focus intensively on the complex interrelationships of cultural context and textual form and genres
  • explore in depth the ways in which communities have both represented themselves and been represented within texts
  • enter into ongoing critical conversations about the relationships between canonical, popular, and marginalized texts and culture
  • gain insight into their own engagement with popular texts and media outside the classroom.
