Literature and Civilization (B.A.) Degrees
The Literature and Civilization major program emphasizes connections between literature, history, philosophy, and writing. Each discipline within the major contributes essential elements to our comprehension of self, others, and the world. The program also focuses on concrete skills and career readiness.
The University’s mission is reflected in our program requirements, which include twelve hours of language study. Students acquire the skills, knowledge, and insights that accrue from the integrative study of literature, history and philosophy, as well as other liberal arts disciplines.
By cultivating skills of critical analysis and effective writing, and furthering the understanding of abstract ideas and historical trajectories, the major program prepares students to go on to graduate study and to pursue careers in teaching, the professions, and business.
