Introduction

The Literature and Writing Studies Program replaces the former English major and provides three emphases: literature, writing, and a single-subject option for students who wish to apply for a secondary teaching credential or who prefer a major that more equally balances literature and writing than the first two options. Students continuing in prior catalogs may pick up a list of old and new course equivalencies at the Department Chair’s office or in the Department’s Administrative Coordinator’s office. In all major options, the LTWR 300A and 300B sequence is required and students are urged to enroll in LTWR 300A the semester they begin work on their major. Three and four-hundred level courses may be taken with junior standing (or with consent of the instructor) and in any order, although higher-numbered courses may presume more background than those with lower numbers. Five-hundred level courses are graduate level that may also be taken by advanced undergraduates.
