Undergraduate Courses in Language and Literature

Academic Year 2021-2022

The English Department at BU offers a range of courses for non-majors and more advanced students. Many of our courses fulfill multiple Hub capacities, and most are seminar-size (20 students or less). We encourage critical and creative thinking and writing, intellectual exploration, and interactions between students and professors.

Classes range across genres, history, and the globe and include a diversity of voices. Because the major and minor offer flexibility, students can take the classes that interest them most.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————
All courses carry 4 credits, unless otherwise indicated.

One course numbered CAS EN 121 – 201 and 203 – 215 may count toward the seven additional courses, provided it was taken before or concurrently with EN 220.

If you are considering a major or minor in English, you should take EN 220 rather than WR 150, 151, or 152.

Please note that a class may not be used to fulfill more than one distribution requirement.
