Undergraduate Specialization

English majors can specialize in Literature and the Mind by taking, at any time before graduation, four approved courses. At least two of these must be courses taught by the English faculty (or affiliates) associated with the specialization. Two may be taken from a list of approved courses taught by instructors in other departments. These requirements can also be satisfied by taking a graduate course with the permission of the instructor. You may also petition the Mind Committee to have other courses approved for specialization credit. 

Other options for fulfilling the four-course requirement will be: a 199R (course credit for assisting a professor with research); a 199 independent study; an honors thesis; and, when our internship program is ready, a 199E (an example would be an internship conducting telephone intakes in a counseling center, or other volunteer work, like mentorship).
