The courses you take examine works of literature and other media in their most important contexts: historical, cultural, linguistic, socio-political and philosophical.

Interested in Irish literature? Study abroad in Ireland—or Italy, Denmark or India. You can also meet outstanding visiting artists like Art Spiegelman, David Sedaris and Margaret Atwood, without ever leaving campus.
