Arts and Letters

The concentration in Arts and Letters draws on work in literature, history, fine art, art history, theatre or drama, and popular culture. The grouping together of these courses reflects the way that work in Women’s and Gender Studies in these areas has smudged the traditional disciplinary boundaries and has created new ways of conceptualizing knowledge.

The following courses will form the area of concentration in Arts and Letters. In some cases a course may count in two areas of concentration, but may only be taken for credit in one.
