Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The student majoring in English must take ENLT 140 : English Inquiry or the equivalent, and twelve other courses designated ENLT, THTR, or WRTG. Students are required to take at least one course in each of the following areas:

A-3. American Lit: 1950-present


(In development)


In addition, of the twelve courses beyond ENLT 140  or the equivalent, at least one must be at the 300 level, at least one must be a 400-level senior seminar, at least one more must be at the 300 or 400 level, and at least one must be designated Theory Intensive (ENLT 225 , ENLT 227 , ENLT 228 , ENLT 341 , ENLT 345 , ENLT 362 , ENLT 443 , ENLT 462 ). Students may place Theatre and/or Writing courses in either the English major or the cognate area, but no course can be counted for both the major and the cognate.

Although the English department strongly recommends ENLT 140  as the initial course in the major, any ENLT course numbered from 120 to 179 may serve as an equivalent and be substituted both in the major and as a prerequisite for more advanced course work. A total of no more than two courses with a number between 120 and 179 can be counted toward the major.

Theatre Track

Completion of this track will be noted on the English major’s transcript. The student must complete a minimum of five courses (15 credits) toward the track. Courses counted toward the track include any course designated with the THTR prefix; WRTG 215 , WRTG 315 ; and ENLT 211 , ENLT 220 , ENLT 295 , ENLT 340 , ENLT 345 , ENLT 341 , ENLT 355  .

Writing Track

Completion of this track will be noted on the English major’s transcript. The student must complete a minimum of five courses (15 credits) designated with the WRTG prefix and numbered at the 200 level or above. Of these five courses, at least one must be in Creative Writing (WRTG 213 , WRTG 214 , WRTG 215 , WRTG 216 , WRTG 313 , WRTG 314 , WRTG 315 , WRTG 316 ), and at least one must be in Applied Writing (WRTG 210 , WRTG 211 , WRTG 212 ).
