The Undergraduate Certificate in World Literature provides a survey of movements and trends in World Literature as well as the opportunity to focus on specific topics, eras, or areas of the field. Students are given a conceptual framework and the methodological tools to enable them to analyze works of literature, including genres, rhetorical choices, and worldviews that are reflected in national literatures. The certificate program will deepen a student’s knowledge of various cultural beliefs, behaviors, practices, and value systems as these are expressed in literature and related works of art.
