Definitions - Introduction to Literature ENGL 1000X/Y    Introduction to Literature
CREDIT HOURS: 6
This course has two broad but connected objectives: (a) to introduce students to the advanced study of literature in English; (b) further to develop students' literacy skills so that they will be more critical and responsive readers and more exact and imaginative writers. The texts to be studied will differ from section to section, but all sections will explore a variety of authors, genres, national literatures, and time periods. Students can expect to read writers from William Shakespeare to William Gibson, from George Eliot to George Elliot Clarke, and from Jane Austen to Jack Kerouac. Practice in writing is carried on throughout the year in regular essays. For a more complete description of all sections and of texts, students should consult the Departmental website. ENGL 1000.06 will satisfy the University Writing Requirement and serve as prerequisite for entry into most upper-level courses.
NOTES: Credit can only be given for this course if X and Y are completed in consecutive terms and partial credit cannot be given for a single term.
