LIT-302 Advanced American Literature II
This course is an in-depth study of American literature from the late 1800s to the present. It begins by examining the regional realism reflected in late 19th-century writing and ends by critically addressing the search for identity that is characteristic of much of today's writing. The course involves analysis and synthesis of readings as well as a significant amount of writing. Students write a documented research paper as a Capstone project.
Advisory: This is an upper-level literature class. Students should be familiar with the vocabulary and conventions of literary analysis as well as the correct use of (MLA) Modern Language Association style documentation. Before enrolling in an upper-level literature course, students are strongly encouraged to complete English Composition II and one or more introductory literature courses and/or have equivalent knowledge.
