The undergraduate program in English Language and Literature is designed to give students a basic understanding of literature as well as specialized courses in the field. These latter include courses covering the major genres and periods of English literature; textual analysis and criticism constitute an important part of the course work. Students are also offered elective courses in English, American and comparative literatures, and are required to take elective courses in linguistics, humanities, and the physical and social sciences. An undergraduate project is part of the program.
