Concentrations in literature generally include studies that will broaden a student's understanding of literary genres, periods, themes and major authors. Well-developed concentrations in literature generally contain studies of:
- A substantial body of literary texts including literature of different periods.
- The relationships between literature and the historical/literary contexts in which it developed.
- Studies of authors outside the traditional canon.
- Critical approaches to literature.
