Topics in Literature (Shakespeare Studies) 4 credits
While En304 presents students with a broad introduction to the works of William Shakespeare, this course allows students to explore a particular cross-section of this crucial playwright’s work. The course may focus on a selection of Shakespeare’s work by genre (only tragedy, only comedy) or theme (gender, family roles, identity) or medium (comparing dramatic performance to film adaptations). Students are strongly encouraged to have taken En304 before this course, but they are not required to do so. Specific course content is selected by the instructor. Prerequisite: Successful completion of En102 or En150 or approval of Division Chair.
