Language, Literature and Culture Track
International in scope, the Language, Literature and Culture track provides undergraduate students with the interdisciplinary education they need to conduct critical cultural analysis of texts in English, and to function as effective agents in a rapidly transforming global community. It broadly examines the intersection of culture, power, literature and society in relation to language, history, race, gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity, ability, nationality, and citizenship. Students who graduate from this track are prepared to pursue graduate studies in English and related fields or to enter a variety of careers including international affairs, law, business, writing, teaching, and social service.
Students develop programs according to individual interests from a variety of course offerings in world literatures in English and in translation, Writing Studies, Education, Communication, American Indian Studies, African American and African Studies, Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Geography, Women's Studies, and Sociology. A second field of study is not necessary.
