ENGL 125 - Literature and Critical Writing: Identities and Voices in American Literature (W)


3 Credit(s)

America is often called a great melting pot, yet many voices are often ignored or marginalized because they are not the voices of majority culture. In this class, students examine significant works from African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and others. Studied writers include Zora Neale Hurston, June Jordan, Maxine Hong Kingston, M. Scott Momaday, Simon Ortiz, and Alberto Rios.
This course contributes toward satisfying the humanities distribution requirement. All sections are writing enriched. Satisfies a humanities general education requirement for non-majors. Students pursuing majors that require ENGL 102  should register for ENGL 102 , and consult with advisors to identify the theme and focus for their preferred section. Once the 102 requirement has been completed, students may register for a course from ENGL 115  to ENGL 125  to fulfill a humanities general education requirement, as long as a different theme and focus is chosen. Students whose majors do not require ENGL 102  may register for sections of ENGL 115 ENGL 125  to fulfill a humanities general education requirement.
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 101  or ENGL 103  or equivalent. Students who have taken ENGL 103  may take ENGL 115 ENGL 125  for humanities distribution credit.
