The cross-cultural literature concentration with a specialization in the literature of the African diaspora provides students with an opportunity to study the literature of writers whose works are associated with more than one culture or whose works cross the boundaries of national cultures. Students who study literature in this concentration examine cross- cultural influences in the work of particular writers with an emphasis on writers who come from various parts of the African diaspora. The cross-cultural cultural concentration exposes students to literature in the African diaspora which may be beyond the boundaries of the nation or cultural group. Students are required to take 12 credits in African American Literature, African Literature, Asian American Literature, Black Women Writers or Latin American Literature.
