Literature, Teaching of Writing, Peace Corps/International
The literature emphasis aims to develop advanced skills in critical reading, writing, and research. Small-group seminars (no more than 18 students to a class) help to deepen understanding of British and American literature and language and are organized around major figures, trends, genres, or approaches to literary texts. Department-sponsored colloquia held throughout the year introduce new theories of critical interpretation. The Teaching of Writing prepares students to teach English composition in two-year and four-year college settings as well as work overseas in ESL settings. The International Program combines elements of the Teaching of Writing emphasis with special training in ESL and a two year Peace Corps experience. This new program is projected to require 4 years for completion.
