The English Department's literature offerings include (but are definitely not limited to) historical survey courses (such as Medieval, Victorian, or Early American literature), single author studies (such as Milton, Shakespeare, Toni Morrison, James Joyce, James Baldwin, Emily Dickinson, or Zora Neale Hurston), courses on literary theory, cultural criticism, immigrant literature, women's literature, experimental fiction, and African American literature, and courses in selected topics like science fiction, science in fiction, blues detective fiction, the vampire, the western, and the Harlem Renaissance. Students majoring in literature will complete 39 credits of coursework, including the gateway Introduction to Literary Study which will prepare them for the major by, among other things, helping them develop a critical vocabulary and method for reading and writing about literature.
