For fall 2018, the Department of English is offering new programs for students.

English + Film Studies

Students with a particular interest in the interconnections between film and literature are encouraged to pursue a 12-credit film concentration within the English major. Those who study film alongside fiction, poetry and drama have a more comprehensive understanding of modern cultural history and questions of representation.
