Learn to analyze and interpret imaginative literature through the careful reading and critical analysis of representative works from various genres and periods. Explore literary elements such as a work’s structure, style and themes, as well as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism and tone. Develop your writing skills as you express your ideas and analysis in expository, analytical, and argumentative essays.
Learn about the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Develop analytical and critical thinking skills as you learn to describe data patterns and departures from patterns, plan and conduct studies, use probability and simulation to explore random phenomena, estimate population parameters, test hypotheses, and make statistical inferences.
Learn about the elements that define effective argument and composition through the critical analysis and interpretation of complex texts.
