One of the advantages of taking classes in the Department of English and Comparative Literature is the variety and breadth of courses offered each semester for undergraduates. We wanted to showcase a few classes being offered this fall that still have enrollment space and are offering exciting approaches to all of the literature, films, and games that the DOECL has to offer! Find the courses below in ascending order from 100 to 300-level.
Introduction to Critical Game Studies with Prof. Courtney Rivard
ENGL 113, Section 01.
|This course introduces students to the new field of critical game studies, which uses rhetorical and literary theories to explore the impact that games have on our culture. Students will analyze the impact of immersive narratives on players and explore issues of representation and identity by playing through selected games and reading core texts. No gaming experience or equipment is needed.
