Read beyond national and disciplinary boundaries

The major in Literature is perfectly suited for students who love to read, analyze and create texts. Students seeking a bachelor's degree in Literature will encounter canonical literature, including poems, plays, and novels, as well as films, oral storytelling, song, journalism, comics, digital media and so much more. In addition to acquiring a broad knowledge of literary history, criticism, and theory, students will learn the skills to create some of the forms they study. The major thus produces critical readers and writers. Central to the major in Literature is the notion that literature has a vital relationship to culture and society. As the major offers students a traditional grounding in literary study and, at the same time, opens up connections to professional Pathways, our students learn to think critically about the ways in which literary culture operates in the global sphere.

Our topic-based courses are taught by faculty who publish internationally and have connections with the creative industries. Our offerings are particularly strong in the fields of postcolonial studies, travel writing, ecocriticism, media studies, and modern literature and culture. Students who pursue a Literature major graduate prepared and inspired to pursue careers in fields such as journalism, publishing, researching, non-profit or government agencies and the media. Many students go on to further education in literary studies. The curriculum for the Literature major has organized around three components. After completing foundation courses that give students the essential tools for literary analysis and a strong theoretical grounding, students go on to choose among more specialized and advanced literary studies courses in a broad range of topics. Students are also encouraged to pursue elective courses that explore literary contexts and that link up with professional Pathways.

We welcome you and your friends and family to experience what it means to live and learn in our safe, international environment.

Dual Accreditation

Franklin University Switzerland is accredited in both the United States and Switzerland.

That means that your degree is truly international, with automatic validity in two countries, and that you have an advantage to pursuing an international career or furthering your study in the US or Switzerland. The doors opened by a Franklin education go far beyond these two countries, though, and most countries in the world will grant equivalence to a Franklin degree if you have your sights set elsewhere.

Franklin maintains this recognition through periodic quality assurance reviews by authorities from the US and Switzerland.
