Why Study Literature?
The study of English literature offers the discipline you need to read critically, offer constructive feedback on others’ writing, and consider literary representation in a wide range of cultural, historical, and interpretive contexts. Focus on your love of reading while developing the skills of a creative and rigorous thinker, effective communicator, and flexible problem solver—skills you can use in any number of careers or fields.
