Rather than define our graduate curriculum in terms of content and coverage, we organize it around practices.
While the teaching of literary history remains a central component of what we do, our curriculum also inflects each level of coursework according to the wide range of practices we currently perform as academics.
This means that the set of courses offered at the 500-level are characterized by their hands-on focus on various practical and technical skills needed for a successful professional career. Our 600-level offerings are focused on various practices of reading in various fields (literary-historical period, theoretical approach, form and genre). Our 700-level seminars are focused on the practice of advanced research in the discipline.
