Additional Information

English majors who choose to do a Creative Writing minor can count a maximum of six credit hours in creative writing toward the major.

English majors may include six credit hours from Literary and Cultural Studies LCST 201 , LCST 301  or LCST 302  in the first 36 credits of their major program, but must notify the Registrar’s Office that they wish these courses to count toward their English major.

Major courses are chosen in consultation with a departmental advisor on the basis of the student’s preparation, background, career expectations, and educational interests. The department encourages students to design a program of study that exposes them to a range of historical periods and critical approaches to literature. A sound major program should include, in addition to the requisite courses in English, a coherent pattern of complementary courses in other departments and allied fields chosen in consultation with the advisor.
