All you have to do is register.


Literature isn’t just about elbow patches and dusty old books. This course tackles the same literary analysis as a regular English course, but does so through the lens of Bestsellers. Step aside, Tess of the D’Urbervilles—The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is in town.

Bruce Springsteen’s America

Bruce Springsteen isn’t just your dad’s rock hero. The Boss has a point of view, and in this course, you’ll study his lyrics and music to get to the bottom of just what he thought about the good ol’ U.S. of A.
