ENG 2055 - Sophomore Seminar in English

Credits: 4
Required of all English majors, the sophomore seminar is a special topics course designed to provide students with the opportunity to: 1) learn to read literature actively within the context of the discipline of English studies; 2) Study a variety of literary and cultural forms of expression; 3) gain experience in using a variety of interpretive approaches to reading texts; 4) gain practice in the intensive oral and written exchange of ideas and analysis promoted by the seminar format, as necessary preparation for the more advanced work they will undertake upper-level courses in the English program, particularly the senior capstone seminar. Course assignments emphasize the fundamental importance of conversation among scholars within the field of English studies and collaboration among students and between students and faculty. The sophomore seminar is offered each spring semester and is taught by the full-time English faculty on a rotating basis.
