The program, while based in the study of British and American literature, offers courses that explore other traditions, including African. Other topics and issues include women’s literature, film, popular culture and how to write poetry and short fiction.
Through the program, you will learn to read critically, reflect on what you’ve read, engage with literatures of different cultures and times and write in different forms—from expository to creative.
Past years have seen a thriving English club, with students organizing events that let them pursue their interests together. Students have been involved, too, in the visits to campus by the Delcamp Visiting Writers—and are always welcome at the weekly Film Junkies screenings.
