Core Courses:

For information about specific courses that fulfill core curriculum requirements, consult the current Core Curriculum Guide  

The Major:

One course must be in literature of the English Renaissance, one must be in the area of Medieval literature before 1500 and one course in the literature of traditionally marginalized cultures.

Five Electives, two of which must be courses at the 400-level or higher, not including Senior Thesis.

N.B. for Transfer Students:

Because the English Department requires that 27 of the 42 major credits be in courses at the 200 level or above, transfer students who have completed a program in Creative Writing will probably need all 27; those who have taken a literature sequence will have each course evaluated in reference to the St. Joseph’s College Catalog. Introductory courses will transfer at the 100 level; more specialized studies may transfer at the 200 level. Developmental or remedial courses do not count toward the major; neither does any standard Composition course which is a College requirement.

A maximum of 18 English credits may be accepted for the major.

Minor and English Major Track in Film/Media Studies:

18 credits including ENG 111 , with at least 12 credits at the 200-level or above. No more than six credits in Film/Media courses may be counted toward the English major or concentration.
