Language, literature and the world.
Advanced literary studies challenge you to think and write critically about how words
can reflect and shape the world.
Designed to prepare students to teach at a college or to pursue a doctorate, the
program allows you to tailor your studies to best fit your career goals, whether they
include teaching, writing, editing or other field. You will explore language; literature;
composition; rhetoric; literary theory, history and criticism; and more.
Students in this program conduct independent scholarly research. The program offers a
thesis option and a non-thesis option.
