Hamline's English department offers two majors:
Students interested in an English major are encouraged to take the required survey courses in their first year and to declare a major as sophomores. Declared majors must take a sequence of two gateway courses in critical methods and contemporary theory. Juniors and seniors should take primarily 3000-level courses, at least three of which must be literature courses.
The senior seminar is a capstone course, in which students study a topic, author, or a period in depth and develop independent research projects. ENG 3020: Literary and Cultural Theory and the senior seminar must be taken at Hamline. ENG 3010 and ENG 3020 must be taken at least one semester before the senior seminar and are strongly recommended before taking other 3000-level courses.
Note: ENG 1110 is not part of the major but can be counted toward breadth of study.
The standard English major requires 10 courses:
2 introductory inquiries (survey courses)2 gateway courses (ENG 3010 and ENG 3020)5 intermediate inquiries (courses above ENG 3020)1 capstone course (senior seminar)
