Courses in English
English majors do not really take classes; we take experiences.Wendy RogersSenior English Major
The experiences you can have as an English major are more varied than you might have imagined:
Walt Whitman | Film History | African poetry | Shakespeare | Chicano/a literature | Science fiction | Willa Cather | Irish literature | Native American fiction | Jewish-American short stories | Digital humanities | Poetry writing | Sandra Cisneros | Rhetorical analysis | Fiction writing | Film Criticism | Publishing and Editing | Nature writing and ecology | Jane Austen | Sherman Alexie | The Harlem Renaissance | Great Plains studies | Slam poetry | German cinema | Gay and lesbian literature | Women's and gender studies | Modern drama | Film theory | Creative nonfiction
Most of our classes are run as small, intimate, discussion-based seminars, not large anonymous lectures. In English classes, your ideas are valued, your opinions matter. Your professor will know your name.
