Courses

MA and PhD students select from 400-level courses and 500-level seminars. Most 400-level courses (with the exception of ENGL 400) include upper-division undergraduates; graduate-level requirements in these courses include additional class meetings, additional reading and writing, and a teaching component. 500-level seminars are targeted exclusively to graduate students in English. Enrollments in 400-level courses typically run 10-20 students; in 500-level seminars, 5-10 students.
