Beyond a few basic core requirements, English majors tailor their program of study to their own interests. An emphasis on creativity and flexibility allows you to focus on areas that are important to you. You can then choose from three overlapping categories:
Cultural Literacy will expose students to the literatures of various nations and ethnicities in order to better prepare them for negotiating an increasingly global literary field.
Cross-Disciplinary courses will study literature in conjunction with another field of study in order to provide students with a flexible and nuanced understanding of the way disciplines overlap and interrelate.
Genres/Forms will focus on different modes of literary production, from the novel to poetry to drama, as well as specific topics concerning the practice of writing and the history of the English language itself.
