Spring 2017 Course Descriptions
When you study literatures in English, you engage with works of significant cultural and aesthetic value, wrestle with important philosophical questions, reconstruct histories of past times and places, and develop in writing your own critical and creative voice. We offer a diverse range of courses, a graduate program, an honors program, journalism, creative writing and medieval studies minors, scholarly lectures, readings by visiting writers, and other events, all of which give students a rich experience of the discipline of English.
