A Typical Day in the Life of a University-Level *Literature Undergrad*

Enjoyed the literature class and now considering/thinking of becoming a "Literature Major" in your current postsecondary program of study? The following two 10-minute videos from the University of Wales in Bangor follows "Rich," a representative literature undergraduate student through a typical day of school to show you *(partly) what this field of study entails at the higher education level.

In the second video . . .

. . . the presentation continues:

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Sometimes I wish I could go back and repeat the entire experience!

Thanks to the folks at the University of Wales for putting this together. It has the potential of being a great recruitment tool for their English department.

Please keep reading and have a great summer-you've earned it!

Kind regards,

Lee Hobbs
