ENGL 150 Introduction to Literature
The course introduces students to studying contemporary literature as an intellectual discipline by focusing on three major genres: short fiction, poetry and drama. Students can read short stories by Kafka, Joyce, Ellison, and Pauline Melville, along with plays such as M. Butterfly and Angels in America, and poetry by David Malouf, Yeats, and Bishop.

ENGL 240 Introduction to Critical Theory and Literary Studies
Having been introduced to literary genre and concepts, this course introduces students to a range of theoretical perspectives such as race, deconstruction, psychoanalysis, queer theory or feminism. These theories are combined with influential figures, such as Amiri Baraka or Judith Butler, to help contextualize ideas from literary studies within larger social movements.
