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.
