One real agenda of this course is to affirm, or to spark, the love of literature in students who encounter the selected texts. The most optimistic expectation is that this course will provide the foundation of what will be a lifetime reading program.

The course is divided into four main units, each focusing around a specific theme. All students must complete modules focusing on Western Culture and Africa and Africa-Influenced Literature. Two other modules allow students to create a portion of their own course by selecting units that interest them. If they have an interest in a particular language or culture, or want to strengthen the Western material with which the course begins, they have the opportunity to follow those interests. Each unit contains reading comprehension quizzes, an informal reflection paper, and a formal essay assignment.
