Course Requirements

The Department of English provides all majors with a historical foundation in British and American literary traditions, as well as a thorough background in various interpretive approaches. In addition to fulfilling the University's General Education requirements, majors choose one of four concentrations.

Note: If you began the English major prior to Fall 2010, you are completing your program under the two former concentrations.
