|The English Department:
Are You a Member?
Faculty and majors in the English Department look forward to hosting potential majors this Wednesday and Thursday from 4-6 PM each day. For the first time ever, the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences is holding their annual majors fair in the actual departments. That means that students interested in becoming English majors can come to see us in our new natural habitat, on the sixth floor of Phillips Hall.
The Majors Open House provides a forum for students to visit academic departments of interest to them and to discuss opportunities in that discipline with faculty — particularly the curricular requirements of majors and/or minors, and what it means to pursue a program of study with that department. The Department of English offers a major in English and a major in Creative Writing and English, as well as minors in both.
GW English faculty teach a wide range of courses, from creative writing to medieval literature, from Shakespeare to queer film, from British postcolonial studies to American studies in a hemispheric context. We’re convinced you should become an English major already, but if you’re still deciding, why not come talk to us about it? Faculty doors will be open and majors will be around as well. In our lounge (Phillips 628), we’ll have pizza and soda on the first day (Wednesday) but feel free to come by whenever it’s convenient. We look forward to hosting you — and to having you stick around and study with us for the next few years! Declaration of major forms will be available for you as needed.
