Register for Mini Session Courses

posted in: News | 0

Mini and Winter Sessions are designed to offer courses to those who may want to fill in a missing course, try something new or accelerate their progress toward a degree from the University of Maine System.

The Mini Session is a shorter term that begins October 26 after the start of the fall semester offering degree credit courses. The courses allow students to earn additional credits or to explore areas of interest outside of the regular semester schedule. Current students often enroll in a Mini Session course to complete a degree or to retake a course if needed. Those who expect to take a demanding load of courses during the spring may use the Mini and/or Winter Session beginning in December to lighten the course load or use the opportunity to concentrate on just one subject.

Choose from the Centers below that offer courses this 2017 Mini Session:

University College at Bath/Brunswick
University College at Ellsworth
University College at East Millinocket
University College at Houlton
University College at Norway/South Paris

An introduction to the goals, methods, and implications of literary analysis in the 21st century. The underlying assumption is that there is no such thing as a generic or standard reading of a literary work; all readings take place in and depend on a critical framework, whether that be explicit or implicit. From this starting point, the course is constructed around several critical approaches. One of these is a formalist approach in which students interpret the literary text on the basis of its formal features and stylistic conventions. Students will then explore other opposing and overlapping critical approaches, including but not limited to, feminist, Marxist, historicist, and psychological. Prerequisite: ENG 101 or permission of instructor.
