ENG 200 - Introduction to Literary Studies (3)

This course will introduce students to the scholarly study of literature. Students will develop skills in close reading and literary interpretation through their analyses of texts. This course will also introduce students to the different critical approaches to the study of literature. In this course, students will read texts closely, think critically, and respond to texts in their writing assignments; learn different methods of interpretation and analysis, both textual (elements the text uses to create meaning) and contextual (elements that are outside the text, but which also influence the analysis. Ex: biographical, historical, cultural, socio-political, etc.); construct effective written arguments with claims and evidence; and gather, incorporate, and interpret source material in their writing using the appropriate citation format.
