ENG 430 : Literary Criticism

This course is a survey of major theories of literary criticism. Emphasis will be on the development of the student’s ability to read, interpret, and write about literature through the application of the theories. The course also gives attention to possible assessment tools to measure comprehension of literature studied, written about, and researched. Students explore different theories relevant to the variety of literature covered and may engage in collaborative communication through group dynamics (i.e., oral presentations, peer-review workshops, and pairings) that build students’ leadership roles.
