Literature and Cultural Analysis

In the Literature and Cultural Analysis minor, you can discover the ways what we say--and how we say it--shape our understanding of ourselves, our culture, and the world around us. Courses in this program regularly move beyond the classroom (from interdisciplinary collaborations wtih scientists to courses held in regional jails) to build the skills that help you find context and meaning through analysis and creativity.
