Concentration in World Religions, World Literature

In addition to taking ENCR 8100, students fulfill a distinctive set of course requirements focussed on the intersections of literature and religion. Students are expected to complete the three-credit course "Introduction to World Religions, World Literatures" and three semesters of the one-credit "Proseminar in World Religions, World Literatures”; a minimum of six credits in a single religious tradition; a minimum of six credits in the English Department in the literature of a single language community (either in one historical period or two consecutive historical periods) or in the literature of a single pair of language communities within one historical period; and a minimum of three credits that involve the reading of scriptural texts.  A roster of eligible courses is approved by the faculty advisory committee for the concentration in World Religions, World Literatures, and additional courses may be approved by the student’s advisor.
