English Language & Literature BA

Department of Literature, Language, Writing, and Philosophy

In the 21st century literature is a global art that transcends borders, illuminating human concerns, beliefs, and experiences. Through study of a wide range of literary works from past and present and from throughout the world, literature majors in Becton College develop insights needed to understand the diverse aesthetic, cultural, andhistorical bases of literature, and enhance their ability to read with critical understanding and write clearly and analytically.

The literature major offers two options:

  • a track in English and American literature; and

  • a track in World Literature.

 In addition, there are options for students in the five-year Quest program.
