ENGL 3012 - Lit 1800 - Present in Context

5 credit hours
Formerly - ENGL 302
An “in context” course satisfies the requirement in that literary area. At the same time, it prepares students for other 3000-level literature courses and for the advanced work required in 4000-level literature courses. Students will learn (1) how to analyze literary texts within their cultural and historical context; (2) how to negotiate different theoretical perspectives, understanding how different interpretations of a literary text are shaped by the critic’s critical assumptions and reading practices; and (3) how to write an insightful 8-12 page researched critical argument about a literary work using the conventions of the Modern Language Association. English majors are advised to complete an “in Context” course before taking a 4000-level literature course. BE

Terms Typically Offered: One time per year
