College of Arts and Sciences

The Department of Popular Culture studies the forms of creative expression we use in everyday life. Courses in folklore focus on the study of folklore genres, such as folktales and legends, rituals and festivals, or material culture, as well as on the folklore of a region or occupation, or the folklore surrounding a topic or issue (such as folklore of death) (See also Popular Culture.)
