Information for Majors
Advice for majors. Students who major in English should enroll in EH 250 Survey of British Literature and EH 260 Survey of English Literature as early as possible, as these courses prepare students for advanced literary study.
Explorations curriculum requirement in Connectivity. All students must complete a scholarly senior seminar, Exploration term, or independent study as deemed appropriate by disciplinary faculty in the major. English satisfies this requirement through one unit of EH 470, 471, or 472 Senior Seminar.
All majors at the College require a senior conference. Students enrolled in the English senior seminar will present their scholarship and work in the English senior conference, held during finals week.
