2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog


Optional Concentrations

Students may group the coursework for their major into a concentration by taking 9 hours from one of the following lists. Courses taken for the concentration will also count toward the requirements for the major. A student may choose at most two concentrations. Independent studies and thesis coursework may not be applied toward the concentration. Students may also, with permission of their adviser and the English Department director of undergraduate studies, design their own concentration by taking 9 hours of ENGL or WRIT courses in a single topic or field of study.
