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