Advising tips for 2000-level survey classes
- No English major (B.A. or B.S.) should take ENG 2050 Studies in British Literature, as this is a non-majors course and will not count toward the major except in very special cases. All English majors should fulfill their British literature requirement with ENG 2010 English Literature I, ENG 2020 English Literature II, or the honors equivalent thereof.
- No English major (B.A. or B.S.) should take ENG 2350 Studies in American Literature, as this is a non-majors course and will not count toward the major except in very special cases. B.A. majors should fulfill their American literature requirement with ENG 2310 American Literature I, ENG 2320 American Literature II, or the honors equivalent thereof. B.S. majors can take 2310, 2320, or 2120 (African American) or 2130 (Ethnic American) to fulfill their American literature requirement.
- All English majors must take either ENG 2030 or ENG 2040 to fulfill their World Lit requirement for the major. This will also automatically fulfill their General Education LS credit. In other words, no English major need worry about how to obtain LS credit.
- English majors who take ENG 2030 for World Lit should be advised to complete the "Origins and Migrations" theme to fulfill the Local to Global requirement since ENG 2030 is in that theme.
- English majors who take ENG 2040 for World Lit should be advised to complete either "Empire, Colonialism and Globalization" or "Regions in Global Context" for their Local to Global requirement since ENG 2040 is in both those themes.
Advising tips for literature capstone
- Students should not register for their capstone until they have completed ENG 3000.
- Students should have senior standing during the semester they take a literature capstone.
- Students should have already completed a few 4000-level courses prior to registering for a capstone.
- Students will do the capstone project in an already existing 4000-level literature class, with three seats
- designated in each class for capstone students. The way this works is that there will be a 15- seat class of the regular section, with a course number ending in 0 or 5 (Like 4880). Then there will be a concurrent session of the 3-seat capstone section with a course number ending in 1, 2 or 6 (like 4881). Make sure students end up in the right course.
- Students should pick their capstone course carefully—pick a topic they are very interested in—since they are going to be writing a long paper. However, since there are limited seats available, students should also have a backup or two, in case their first choice is full.
- Students can take a course again for capstone credit if the content is different. For example, if a student took a 4880 (Victorian literature) which was focused on Aestheticism, they can take 4881 for capstone credit if it is focused on something else, like the Bildungsroman.
