Note: Starting in 2015-16, the English Department is instituting slight changes in the BA requirements in literature. Students who began their studies before the fall of 2015-16 are still subject to the old requirements, which are listed here for their convenience.
The 2015-16 program includes electives in the 6xx range level. Students who began before 2015-16 are welcome to choose from these as part of their electives, but should note that 6xx-level courses do not offer a seminar paper option.
Majors in literature must take two courses in the 6xx range. These courses can be taken starting in the second year of studies.
Total: 4 credits
Majors in literature track must take two seminars, and they must write seminar papers ("long papers") in both of them. The seminars should be taken in the student's third year and can be chosen from the seminars in the 4xx- and 7xx-level range.
