UNLV's World Literature Program features two courses: ENG 231 World Literature I covers literature from ancient times through the 17th century, and ENG 232 World Literature II focuses on the 17th century up to the present. The University's general education curriculum requires the successful completion of one at least one of these courses.
In addition to emphasizing the literary and aesthetic value of writing from all parts of the globe, both courses are designed to highlight texts’ local and worldly contexts, the intertextual, cross-cultural, and socially significant connections between various works, as well as the continuing relevance of literature in the increasingly globalized world of the 21st century.
