Welcome to the Literature website.  We have designed this website in order to provide you with easily accessed information, including the course outlines for all of the 200 level literature courses.  In addition, please check out the opportunities for you to become involved in the literary life of HCC through The Muse, the Blackbird Poetry Festival, the Book Connection, and Banned Books week.

We have strong community partnerships with the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society (HoCoPoLitSo) and The Little Patuxent Review (LPR) to encourage writing, reading, and celebration of literature. 

Literary Opportunities and Partnerships


  • All 200 level literature courses require English 121 or an equivalent as a prerequisite.
