College of Arts & Sciences (WARSC)
World Literature
This course provides a study of the major works and literary trends in world literature. Course content varies by instructor and is listed in the Schedule of Courses.

The student who satisfactorily completes this course will be able to analyze, evaluate, research, discuss and appreciate world literature and the major social, cultural and intellectual trends which have influenced the texts he or she is studying.

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. Defend (in writing) an interpretation of a literary work by incorporating and correctly documenting evidence from primary and secondary source material.

2. Discuss the features of the genres being studied and assess the writers' manipulation of these features to convey ideas and themes.

3. Examine the social, cultural, religious, and intellectual influences that serve as the immediate context for the works studied.

4. Relate the literary work to the general history of its literary genre within the particular culture being considered.

5. Discuss how the ideas and themes in diverse literary works relate to concerns contemporary to the era of their composition and how they ultimately also relate to the present-day reader.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
