Textual Studies Courses

Return to the summary of requirements.

Growing as a writer depends upon growing as a reader. The textual studies requirement asks students to deepen their knowledge of the traditions and current practices that shape the genres in which they write. The requirement may be met by courses in literature, narrative, or poetics (generally at the 200-level and above) offered by the departments of English, comparative literature, theater, Africana studies, the language departments, and cinema studies. Textual studies credit may, in some cases, be considered for courses outside of these departments but within the Arts and Humanities (ARHU) division of the college. All such considerations and decisions are at the discretion of the program chair.

Students should consult with their advisors when selecting textual studies courses.
