wtf do you fags learn during 5 years while studying a bachelor in literature?
isn't that just a glorified history of literature degree?
i mean you also read literature in addition to studying the history
criticism/analysis/interpretation/etc. not all readings are created equal. someone who studies reading and reads a lot reads better than the average person despite the common misconception that everyone can "read"
>5 years for bachelor
well, I guess that's under literaly criticism, but I'm sure it would take at best one semester and at worst one year to really learn it properly.
My college has licenciature in literature and is pretty much history of literature with a few bits of literary criticism and some writting workshops.
>but I'm sure it would take at best one semester and at worst one year to really learn it properly.
not really, there's a shitton of literature and a shitton of criticism. that's why there are people who spend their entire lives doing it.
writing workshops should not fall under an english/literature degree.
>writing workshops should not fall under a lit degree
I want to get a lit degree because I used to think they should teach you how to write.
if It's just a glorified history of literature degree, I rather just pirate the TTC courses about literature history.
>writing workshops should not fall under an english/literature degree.
writing literature and reading literature fall equally under the scholastic umbrella of literature
if you get a degree in lit never having picked up the pen then i guess good job on graduating from the university of phoenix
writing workshops are geared for creative writing., which is the providence of a MFA.
a literature degree teaches you how to write academic papers and criticism but there shouldn't be dedicated "writing" classes since it assumes you know enough to pick it up along the way.
you should get a degree on what interests you and/or gets you a job depending on your priorities/life circumstances
