ENGL-295   Introduction to Studies in English

An introduction for all English majors in the fundamental questions of the discipline as well as the tools necessary for students to succeed in advanced work in the major. This course serves as an overview of English?s history, methodologies, and hermeneutical traditions. It also focuses on vocation in both theoretical and practical ways. This course will function as the bridge between introductory courses and advanced ones. Although this class will serve as a prerequisite to all 300-level literature courses, students may take 300-level courses, including literature courses, concurrently with English 295.
