Literary Studies Minor


This minor can be declared through the department of English, Rhetoric, and Humanistic Studies .

Cadets who pursue the Literary Studies Minor will analyze significant works of literature in the context of the traditions and cultures that shaped and were shaped by them. Cadets will utilize various critical approaches to evaluate, understand, and respond to works from a variety of genres and historical periods in order to appreciate the important role of literature in reflecting and shaping one's values, beliefs, and practices. In addition to studying the works of established writers, Cadets will compose their own creative works.

Note:


When appropriate, other courses may be substituted, e.g., ERH 230 - Artistic Responses to Social and Political Issues , ERH 421 - One Text , and ERH 422 - Major Figures . A notation will be included on the course schedule so that cadets are aware of this possibility.
