Our Literature concentration empowers English majors to engage critically with the many texts that compose our world. This concentration will train you to analyze various genres, think critically about their implications, and communicate effectively in speech and writing. Choosing this concentration enables you to build your knowledge of historical traditions in British, American, and world literatures in English, as well as the functions and historical development of the English language. Through this investigation, you will develop skills in research, argumentative writing, and literary analysis, building a foundation for graduate study or employment in areas that require critical thinking and communication skills, all while exploring how language expresses diverse cultural experiences necessary for active participation in our increasingly diverse society.
