Folklore Studies


College: College of Liberal Arts & Communication

Department: English and Philosophy


Folklorists focus on a broad spectrum of social expression, examining the forms and ways of living through which communities shape their reality. Those forms include language, work, food, play, dance, song, gestures, beliefs, and so forth. Folklore tends to focus on those cultural forms that permeate the everyday, which are passed from generation to generation, usually orally, with no one author or creator.

Please consult with your advisor if you plan on pursuing a minor in Folklore Studies.
