EXPLORING THE DISCIPLINES: LITERATURE (EDU-232072)

Center for Distance Learning Home > Distance Learning Catalog > Educational Studies >

Course Description:


This eight-week course is intended to get students to investigate the nature of literature. The course is focused around two texts, Shakespeare's Hamlet and Lolita Files' Child of God, which students will read and discuss in depth. Both texts include a similar story-line: a murder, an incestuous relationship, an uneasy resolution at the end. By exploring these texts written over 300 years apart, students will learn about the types of themes, questions, comparisons and insights that literature has to offer. The course will also start to offer insight into literary analysis and research.

Note: this course is open to all students. Center for Distance Learning students taking this course for educational planning credit should obtain mentor/advisor permission. This course can be used towards CDL Educational Planning and SUNY general education credit.

This course fully meets the General Education requirement in Humanities.
