ENGL 204 - Survey of American Literature (3)


This course is designed to familiarize students with the rich variety of literature produced in American—from the Colonial through the Modern periods. Students are exposed to a range of writers and traditions that constitute the diverse and multicultural American experience, through discussion and through critical thinking and writing about significant literary works. In addition to tests and quizzes, students are required to write and revise at least two formal, critical essays or equivalent writing (1,000-word computer drafted minimum); however, instructors are encouraged to assign significant amounts of writing beyond the required minimum in order to facilitate students’ continued acquisition of critical thinking, reading, and writing skills.

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 102 - Writing for Arts and Humanities (3)
