Does Comp. Lit satisfy the English prerequisites that American medical schools have? This is the course I want to take: COMP LIT 1A03 INTRODUCTION TO COMPARATIVE LITERATURE I Students engage in the close study of selected literary works from texts of antiquity to the beginnings of modern literature. Considerable attention is given to the development of critical skills in reading and writing. Or should I take an English course that has 'English' in the course code? eg. ENGLISH 1B03 CULTURAL STUDIES AND VISUAL CULTURE An introduction to cultural studies focusing on the critical and conceptual tools for the analysis of various forms of visual culture (e.g., photography, film, television, advertising, new media technologies). Considerable emphasis is placed on the development of effective writing skills. Thanks!
