Picture of globe


READ! Discover and discuss exciting novels from around the globe.  India, Nigeria, South Africa, and Egypt will be among our travels in this course, perfect for students seeking to broaden their horizons and globalize their education in a fun atmosphere.  This “online book club” can be used to fulfill COD’s Humanities/Fine Arts or Global/Multicultural General Education requirements, and is fully approved for IAI transfer credit (IAI GECC H3 980N - Non-Western Literature in Translation).

No previous literary experience or literature courses are required for this course--only that you’ve completed English 1101 and have an interest in learning more about other cultures and their literature.  Class activities will include weekly discussion, short essay responses, and contributions to our collective online scrapbook (or “wiki”).

English 2262 is a 3 credit hour course.
