ENGL 400 - Seminar in Literary Research and Writing (cc)


Credit(s): 3
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 112  or ENGL 192  / HONR 192 . For English majors in their senior year of study. Permit required.
ENGL 400 is the capstone course for the English major. During the semester, students will be introduced to theory and schools of criticism and study them alongside primary sources, so to develop an informed sense of how literature responds to applied theory and criticism, as well as of how theory and criticism form their own body of literature. Throughout the semester students will work on developing a definitive research paper representing the culmination of the skills (the learning outcomes) developed throughout all of the previous English major coursework. Students will as well create an “English Major Statement” that will require students to reflect upon and then express in essay form all they have learned, experienced, and accomplished throughout their time as English majors in the English program.

This is the Core Course for students in the B.A. English program beginning in Fall 2020. For an explanation of the Core Course Requirement , click here.
