Literary and Cultural Studies Concentration
A Critical Observer
The Literary and Cultural Studies Concentration investigates the cultural complexity of modern societies through stories and histories.
Using critical theory approaches, this concentration explores historical and emergent traditions of literature, culture, thought, and the historical and social contexts in which literary and cultural artifacts are produced and consumed.
Through the study of literature and other forms of cultural production, students learn to interpret how cultural values are constructed and creatively articulated.
They develop invaluable skills in writing and expression, as well as new ways of understanding and making sense of the world, preparing them to think originally and innovate across diverse environments.
Structure of the LCS Concentration:
In addition to the 5 required courses, students in the LCS Concentration must take at least 6 additional elective major courses in their concentration. For the remaining 16 credits (= 4 courses), students may choose to take any elective major course from any ICIC concentration (FLC/LCS/EPE). ICIC 452 Independent Project in Humanities and Languages is to be taken in the final year of the program, concurrently with ICIC 451 Senior Writing Seminar.
