General Literary Studies (GLS)

This program reflects the assumption that educated persons will wish to extend their experience of literature beyond what has been written in their native tongue and beyond what they can read in the foreign languages they have mastered. The education of any student can be enriched by exploring literature in translation. Courses in General Literary Studies make possible the discovery of a variety of illuminating relationships among works in different languages. While the program does not offer a major, its courses serve the literary interests of all students and provide greater breadth for majors in the foreign languages and in English.
