Bachelor of Arts in Literature
Literature does more than prepare students for careers in a variety of fields; it equips learners with skills that are crucial to success in any endeavor. A traditional liberal arts major, Alvernia's Literature program offers students opportunities for self-knowledge and growth as they explore the ideas of great writers of past and present. Reading those works promotes development of high level communication skills while enhancing depth of knowledge across disciplines. Interpreting and deconstructing ideas helps students to shape their world-views while refining skills in logic, reasoning and conceptual analysis.
Because Literature courses encourage critical thinking, clear writing and effective communication, students that choose this major often choose careers in teaching, law, management, journalism, library science, government service, among other fields. The program also offers students the opportunity to prepare for graduate programs.
