Pellissippi State has added two new classes to its course list, available this fall semester.
Introduction to Shakespeare and Introduction to Poetry were both recently approved by the Tennessee Board of Regents. The courses will be taught by Edward Francisco, professor of English and writer in residence at Pellissippi State.
Currently, Pellissippi offers Creative Writing and Introduction to Fiction. The new poetry course will align Pellissippi’s course offerings with that of the University of Tennessee’s English Department.
Introduction to Shakespeare will be offered as an elective and will cover various tragedies, comedies and histories. This will be the first course offered at Pellissippi to focus specifically on his work.
