The Literary, Textual, and Cultural Studies Track enables students to design a course of study in the history, meaning, function, and aesthetics of texts of all kinds, especially literary texts.
A student who completes the Literary, Textual, and Cultural Studies Track will be able to identify the unique material, symbolic, formal, and aesthetic qualities of texts of all kinds, especially literary texts; apply the analytical skills and methods best suited to comprehend the significance of texts; analyze the ways that texts of all kinds interact with audience, culture, medium and ideology; evaluate the role of theory—its methods, history, politics, and functions—in literary, textual, and cultural studies analysis; and examine the ways in which questions of race, gender, sexual orientation, and identity affect our interactions with both traditional and nontraditional literature and theory. The Literary, Textual, and Cultural Studies Track prepares students for any profession that requires strong analytic, communication, cultural, and aesthetic skills and for academic study in literary and cultural studies.
