|Description:||Great writing can elevate our understanding of the way things once were, the way we live now and what might be possible in the future. For instance, when you read about the complicated romance between Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy in Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice, you also learn about a woman’s precarious financial security in late 18th century England.
Students wishing to concentrate in drama may elect the Single Majors option in English (Drama). This programme will consist of at least 14 term-courses in English, of which at least 10 must be upper level courses. Students who elect to take the drama option will organize their programmes according to the standard requirements for Majors. At the upper level, they will be required to complete ENGL 3801 , at least one Shakespeare course, and at least two other upper level courses devoted to the study of dramatic literature (see the Majors Coordinator for a list of acceptable options).
