Literature Undergraduate Concentration
The undergraduate literature program is designed to familiarize students with many areas of English, American, and European literature. The literature curriculum offers a full range of approaches, from the study of historical periods and genres to the most recent developments in literary criticism and theory.                                                

In addition to the 12-hour English Core Requirement, Literature majors must choose 12 hours of Literature courses.  Typically students take 6 hours of 3000-level Literature and 6 hours of 4000-level Literature.  Neither ENGL 4900 or 4996 can be counted toward the Literature concentration total hours.                                                          

Program Notes:

No more than 3 hours of African American Literature courses (ENGL 3325, 3326, 4372, 4373, 4374) may be applied to the Literature concentration.
