"Everyone's a Critic"
Critical Methods for Literary Study
This course is your introduction, your indoctrination, your welcome, and your first big challenge in the English major or minor. You will learn the methods and methodology of literary criticism; that is, how to read, think about, and write about literary texts (and—crucially—why). This is a reading- and writing-intensive course (which is why it’s often called the “boot camp” for English majors), but it’s also an exceedingly rewarding experience in which you’ll grow as a thinker and writer alongside a small group of your fellow English students.
