majors and Programs
The English Department offers a literature-based major with concentrations in literature or wrting, with extended graduate and teacher prep tracks. At 36 units, the general major doubles easily with many other majors. A third of the major may be fulfilled on the Department's beloved England Semester (off-campus semester long program). The literature concentration focuses primarily on British, American and world anglophone literature; the writing concentration combines literary study with options in journalism, creative writing, film analysis, screenwriting, student publications and advanced composition. Students may fulfill major requirements with internships, tutorials, seminars, and major honors projects. A lively Literary Society is entirely student-led.
