Course Groupings

Culture & Expression is a flexible, interdisciplinary degree program, structured around two core courses (CLTR 2100 Questioning Culture and CLTR 3100 Culture, Meaning and Form) that introduces students to some of the theoretical, methodological issues and terminology in the study of culture. Beyond the core courses, students select their remaining credits from an extensive list of program courses that touch on many periods and places and focus on a variety of cultural forms. In order to expose students to a range of disciplinary perspectives, courses are divided into four groups:
