LAS Concentration

The 24-credit undergraduate LAS concentration lets you complement your studio major with more in-depth studies in literature, critical theory and writing. You can focus on courses in literary history and traditions, critical theory and creative writing (including workshops in poetry and fiction writing), postcolonial literatures and cultures, environmental humanities, race and gender, film, and performance.

All RISD BFA or BArch candidates are eligible to add an LAS concentration. You can complete it within a typical 4- or 5-year degree program. As a concentrator you may take courses in many areas or develop a personal course of study that allows for deeper exploration of literary genres, periods, theoretical approaches and more.
