The major in English (EN) offers students access to a thousand years of literature, from Beowulf to contemporary books in English from all over the world. Under the guidance of internationally known scholars and writers, students are exposed to a wide range of approaches. Many courses have an interdisciplinary dimension, making connections between literature and such fields as philosophy, religion, the arts, politics, science, material culture, and history. In small classes, students learn techniques of analysis, interpretation, and research that are applicable to many fields and professions (e.g., teaching, law, education, business, politics, journalism, and publishing). Courses in creative writing are also available to undergraduates.
