Assessment
and Goals
:

Students should demonstrate the ability to analyze literary texts in relation to the contexts in which they were produced, and to discuss these relationships in class. Students must also communicate this information in written formats such as exams and papers, making effective use of text analysis and citation of primary and secondary texts.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE REPLACES SPAN 3201 AND 3202, MASTERPIECES OF PENINSULAR LITERATURE I AND II. IT IS DESIGNED AS AN INTRODUCTORY SURVEY OF SPANISH LITERATURE AND PREPARES STUDENTS FOR MORE FOCUSED SEMINARS AT THE 36XX LEVEL. MASTERPIECES WERE REDUCED TO ONE COURSE TO ALLOW FOR MORE CHOICE AND FLEXIBILITY AT THE SEMINAR LEVEL; STUDENTS PREVIOUSLY HAD FOUR REQUIRED COURSES AND ONLY ONE ELECTIVE TO CHOOSE IN THE COURSE OF THE MAJOR. THE TITLE WAS MODIFIED TO MORE ACCURATELY REFLECT THE GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY OF THE COURSE AND THE SPANISH DISCIPLINE, WHICH IS NOT LIMITED ONLY TO TRADITIONAL CONCEPTIONS OF CANONICAL WORKS OF LITERATURE CONSIDERED INDEPENDENTLY OF THE DIVERSE CONTEXTS IN WHICH THEY ARE PRODUCED.
