In this program, we examine literature as a living process intimately connected with the complex problems of its place, culture, community and history through courses in writing, rhetoric and literary theory.
Why Saint Martin's University?
The literary studies curriculum introduces our majors and minors to a substantial body of knowledge in British, American and Anglophone literature, as well as literary works in translation from across the globe and throughout history. Literary studies majors are encouraged to become familiar with a broad array of literary traditions and critical methodologies before specializing in a capstone project—a research-intensive, interpretive thesis undertaken in the senior year.
A major in literary studies is excellent preparation for:
- Jobs that require skills in communication, research, analysis and public relations
- Continued professional studies at the graduate level (e.g., business, law, medicine, public administration)
- Specialized employment in education, journalism, publishing, creative arts
