Literature

Few things are more universally captivating than a great story. Literature has the power to transport us to the author’s world, to see things through another’s eyes. Studying a wide variety of written works across time and cultures fosters a love of reading, improves writing and encourages critical thinking that “reads between the lines.” Expand your love of literature with our current course offerings.
