The prerequisites for all upper-level English courses are simply the departmental core requirements: EN 101 and one EN 200-level class.

Graduation Requirements

English majors and minors should familiarize themselves with these departmental requirements for graduation:

  • Majors take a minimum of 10 upper-level classes. One of these must be EN 300. The other nine must be divided as follows - four from courses number 301-359, and five from courses numbered 340-399. Two of these nine must be seminars.
  • Interdisciplinary Majors take a minimum of five upper-level courses. Two must come from courses number 300-359, and two from courses numbered 340-399. One of the five must be a seminar.
  • Minors take a minimum of five upper-level courses beyond the core requirement. At least two of these should deal with literature written before 1800 (EN 300-359) and two should deal primarily with literature written since 1800 (EN 340-399). The fifth course may be from either area. All English minors are required to take at least one seminar.

Students with questions about requirements or any other aspect of the English program should consult with their advisor and the department chair, Mark Osteen: mosteen@loyola.edu (Humanities 242 B, x2363).
