1. Introductions to literary analysis and interpretation: 3 credits


ENG 131  is required of all majors except those who have been exempted from the core curriculum writing requirement.  Exemptions from ENG 131  are granted only by means of the English Dept. challenge exam, which as a rule is given only to incoming freshmen.  Students planning graduate study are advised to take at least three hours in advanced writing.

5. Advanced Studies in English: 18 credits (6 of the following courses)


ENG 308 , ENG 316(I,D) , ENG 328(I,D,X) , ENG 335I , ENG 336(I,D) , ENG 463(I,D,X)  are not individual courses; they are inclusive categories of courses. For example, there is no course called ENG 328(I,D,X)  Major Authors. Rather, there is ENG 328I Chaucer, ENG 328I Shakespeare, etc.  There is no requirement to take one of each number (for example one 316, one 328, etc.).

^ If ENG 305 , ENG 308  or ENG 309SX  was used to fulfill the Writing requirement, it may not be used to fulfill the Advanced Studies requirement as well.
