Literature or Graduate School Preparation

If you are interested in studying literature or, perhaps, applying to graduate school in English, you can develop your own program of course work, taking advanced courses while maintaining your undergraduate status and fulfilling undergraduate requirements. This option requires the six English core courses listed above as well as the following: 

  • One course in English, American, or Irish Literature before 1800 (3 hours)
  • One course in English, American, or Irish Literature after 1800 (3 hours)
  • One course in Continental Literature (3 hours)
  • Three more electives from 300- or 400-level English courses (9 hours)
