EN 101 is the prerequisite for all upper-level English courses. EN 200-level courses count toward the major.
English majors and minors should familiarize themselves with these departmental requirements for graduation:
- Majors take 11 upper-level classes: 3 pre-1800 courses (300-339; 407; 411-439); 1 course in 19th-century literature (350-369; 450-469); 1 course in 20th- and 21st-century literature (370-399; 470-499); 5 electives (any course 300-410). 2 of these courses must be EN 400 level seminars. The second core (EN 200s) counts toward the major.
- Interdisciplinary Majors take a minimum of five upper-level courses. One must come from courses numbered EN 300-339; 407; 411-439. One of the five must be a seminar.
- Minors take a minimum of five upper-level courses beyond the core requirement. At least one of these should deal with literature written before 1800 (300-339; 407; 411-439). All English minors are required to take at least one seminar
