Literary Studies and Creative Arts

The American University of Paris

Aug 2011 - Apr 2013
  • The Major in Literary Studies and the Creative Arts provides a forum within which students relate academic study to their own creative production in literature, drama, and the fine arts. In conjunction with the Comparative Literature Major, students gain broad and rigorous knowledge of literature in its historical and geographical contexts. That knowledge is coupled with close analysis of the details of literary production. Knowledge and analysis are informed by related work in other disciplines and by attention to linguistic and cultural diversity. In classes taught by creative practitioners, students produce creative work and develop creative and professional skills, and demonstrate the capacity to reflect upon, analyze, and evaluate their own work. Students are encouraged to develop and articulate a personal focus for their reading and their creative production, which issues in a portfolio combining academic and creative work, and a senior project in the final year.
