Undergraduate Studies

Book covers of Rankine, Twain, Shax and SmithWelcome

We are a large department of approximately 300 majors and 200 minors. The 42 members of our faculty teach a range of courses, from Old English to Contemporary American Literature. In any given semester, you will find courses that explore the sweep of American and British literature, as well as more specialized offerings in linguistics, film, and creative writing. The majority of our courses are taught in a discussion format with great attention paid to the nuances of language and style.

Our literature and writing courses require at least twenty pages of writing, ideally a mixture of high- and low-stakes assignments. Such assignments might include timed examinations, blog or journal postings, one-page response papers, five- to seven-page argumentative essays, annotated bibliographies, research-intensive papers, web-sites, short stories, poems and other forms of writing.
