Undergraduate Major Tracks
In our experience, the best work connecting philosophy and literature manifests a thoroughgoing integration of specialized skills and knowledge drawn from both disciplines. Philosophy + Literature major tracks offer students serious mainstream training within criticism and within philosophy, as well as courses designed to synthesize the two. Ideally, our students will contribute fresh insights into what literature and philosophy are capable of in combination, after first reaching an understanding of what each is and does on its own.
The undergraduate major tracks are offered through participating departments. Students in these tracks take courses alongside students from other departments that also have specialized tracks associated with the Initiative in Philosophy and Literature.
