The 300-level survey courses offer students an understanding of literary works in their historical and cultural contexts. As such, each course introduces students to a broad spectrum of literature: students will read a diversity of genres, forms, and writers—both canonical and nontraditional—and they will be introduced to the key figures, concepts, and movements that define literary periods. 

Written assignments for such courses will generally focus on close reading and critical analysis of literary works.
