English: World Literature
Bachelor of Science (BS)
Castleton University in Castleton, VT
As an English major at Castleton, you will become a part of a close-knit, stimulating community of faculty and students who understand that studying reading and writing at the college level can be both practical and intellectually engaging. Class sizes are often smaller than the college average, giving you a more personal engagement with your peers, professors, and course content. It is not unusual to find students and faculty talking together outside of class. The English faculty take pride in advising students as they navigate their intellectual journey in, and beyond, the university. The major in English offers you a balance of deep and broad study through a core of common classes and four areas of concentration: American Literature, World Literature, Children’s Literature, and a Concentration by Contract. Each concentration takes reading and writing seriously, for we realize that the best way for us to prepare students for a professional life is to cultivate a sense of intellectual independence and a love of language in its many uses. As an English major you will follow a rigorous, varied, and stimulating course of study designed to prepare you for any career path you choose to pursue: graduate school, teaching, business, law, medicine, journalism, government, etc. You will not only develop a deep foundational knowledge of literature, but also hone interpretive, analytical, and critical skills that form the basis of the core abilities or skill sets that employers and professional schools find most attractive. Upon graduation you will have the ability to think creatively and critically, solve real-world problems, and communicate clearly and elegantly in both speech and writing. World Literature lets you tour the world past and present. Sail the Mediterranean with Odysseus, conquer Asia with Genghis Khan, tour Hell with Dante, and fight demons with Rama. Try new things: defy authority with Antigone, become enlightened with the Buddha, climb Machu Picchu with Pablo Neruda. Find out how it feels to be the outside in Colonial India or Africa. Listen to the voices of people from other countries as they tell you what it is like to experience their cultures from the inside: the Japanese perspective on Hiroshima, the African perspective on the slave trade, the Native American perspective on the United States. Expand your horizons to encompass new ways of seeing. Prepare yourself for life in a global society. See through eyes that are not your own and gain the ability to see the world better. Students concentrating in World Literature typically take: World Literature through Renaissance World Literature from Enlightenment Epic Poetry Lyric Poetry Greek Tragedy World Fiction Asian Literature and Thought Studies in World Literature Dante Women Writers Folk Tales

Literature
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
Literature and writing at Bennington are grounded in the idea that good writers are by definition good readers. In small seminars centered on animated discussion, students are invited by a faculty of novelists, memoirists, poets, literary journalists, and translators to share a writer’s perspective on contemporary and classic works of literature. Students discover that the act of writing is a conversation with other writers, past and present; that analysis is artful and imaginative; that creative writing is rigorous and thoughtful. We aim to develop students’ aptitude for critical thinking, analytical reading, scholarly writing, literary translation, and creative writing by engaging them in the concentrated study of a broad range of literary works and styles from antiquity to the present. Bennington’s literary community is an active one. Literature Evenings are held in a student house living room and feature bi-weekly readings by distinguished guest writers, students, and faculty. The annual winter Field Work Term allows students firsthand experience in the world of publishing, journalism, literary magazines, and other areas in which they can enrich their writing and reading. Student publications like SILO and the Bennington Free Press provide outlets for student writing and editing. And Bennington Review, a national biannual literary journal based at the College, provides students with the opportunity to help edit and produce a professional print literary magazine. The vibrancy of this community can be seen in our alumni: Among them are seven Pulitzer Prize winners, three U.S. poet laureates, the youngest winner of the Man Booker Prize, a MacArthur “Genius,” countless New York Times bestsellers and National Book Awards. Recent graduates have gone on to attend PhD and MFA programs at Stanford University, Iowa Writers Workshop, NYU, UVA, Brown University, among many others. Very recent graduates have had poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, journalism, and book reviews published or accepted by The Atlantic Wire, The Awl, Boston Review, Christian Science Monitor, Denver Quarterly, The Guardian, Los Angeles Review of Books, Ploughshares, and more. Bennington’s literature faculty is made up teacher-practitioners—active writers, renowned in their fields. They are NEA fellows, Fulbright fellows, and PEN Award finalists, and have been published in The New Yorker, Slate, The Paris Review, Yale Review, Tin House, The Literary Review, Chicago Review, Best American Short Stories, among others.

Comparative Literature
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT
The mission of the Comparative Literature Program is to establish a strong common framework for all students of literature at Middlebury College by facilitating cooperation and communication among scholars and teachers of literature in all departments and programs involved. Comparative literature differs from other approaches to literature in that it prepares students to focus on the comparative study of national literatures. In particular, students receive training in at least two of these literatures in the original language along with comparative methodology. The Comparative Literature Program offers a core course on world literature, cross-lists several literature and culture courses with other departments and programs, and encourages students to consider the many Middlebury courses on English-language literature and on world literature in the original languages and in English translation. CMLT 0101 (Introduction to World Literature), our core course, is the first of a series of courses that center on the study of literature across cultures, times, and languages. The staff for each year’s version of CMLT 0101, normally offered in the spring semester, is drawn from at least three departments and programs. The Comparative Literature Program offers a major, but CMLT 0101 may be also counted toward the major in English and American Literatures, Literary Studies, and in some of the foreign literature and language departments.

Spanish Language and Literature
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Castleton University in Castleton, VT
The Modern Foreign Language The Castleton Spanish Program makes it possible for students to acquire cultural knowledge and to become proficient in the Spanish language in an environment that embraces a holistic approach and retains a genuine interest in cultivating the love for the Spanish languages and cultures. Our teaching faculty is composed of native speakers from different parts of the Spanish speaking countries; we have a professor from Peru, another from Argentina, and each year we have a teaching assistant typically from Mexico. A Program with Many Activities Our students benefit from a diverse student population: some native speakers, others that have gone abroad to study Spanish, and novice but ambitious Vermont and out-of-state students. The program offers small, yet personalized classes that are learner-centered. Our students may voice their interests and opinions at our weekly Spanish Club meetings. They are offered an opportunity to practice their communicative skills outside the classroom setting at our weekly language table meetings. They can put their creativity and competitive minds to work at our cultural semester agenda, which includes cooking workshops, dance classes, film showings, our Spanish radio program and/or our full immersion field trips to cities such as New York, Boston, or Montreal. Each semester brings in new forces and special people that help us define the particular needs for that time period. Our students have had hands-on experience while translating official documents and they had a unique opportunity to teach Spanish to the little ones from a local middle school. As Spanish is increasingly being spoken in more areas and by more people, we will continue to find new ways to relate our students to the community. Why study Spanish? Spanish is a vital and vibrant language in world communication, business, e-commerce, politics, and culture. Some 480 million people speak Spanish as a first language. During the decade between 1980 and 1990 there was an increase of 50% in the number of Spanish speaking people in the United States. Spanish is now the most spoken language after English in this country. It is also the second most used language on the Web. Spanish is gaining more recognition in the academic world as an independent and promising major for students from all backgrounds.

Students in the English degree program acquire a foundation of analytical and creative skills that can be applied readily in any field.

The works explored include both the traditional canon and works and writers of the diverse world in which we live. Students are exposed to a wide variety of ideas and concepts and are taught to develop their own views of the world as a result. Through the study of literature, English majors explore expressions of the human spirit spanning centuries and develop their skills in critical analysis, creative problem solving, research, writing and speaking. Majoring in English is an ideal preparation for understanding the complexities of the contemporary world. English Major Portfolio Requirement In the required Humanities Capstone course, which is part of the College’s General Core, English Majors compile their best work from their educational career into a final graduate portfolio.
