WRITING COURSES:

After taking or placing out of Introductory Compostion, students may elect English 225 for further practice in fundamentals of expository and argumentative prose. English 325 and 425 offers the opportunity for work in argumentative and expository prose at a more advanced level.

Several sections of English 223, the beginning course in creative writing, are available each term. You may take either fiction or poetry, or you may take English 227-Introduction to Playwriting. 223 is the prerequisite to the more advanced creative writing courses 323, 423 or 429. Admission to these advanced course is by permission of the instructor, who may require writing samples.

INDEPENDENT STUDY/INTERNSHIPS:

Independent study in English must be elected under one of the following numbers: 226 (Directed Writing, 1-3 hours), 299 (Directed Reading, 1-3 hours), 426 (Directed Writing, 1-4 hours), 499 (Directed Reading, 1-4 hours). There is a limit to the total hours that may be taken under any one number. Students interested in independent study should obtain an application from the English Department office on the third floor of Angell Hall. Independent study proposals must be approved by a supervising professor and by the Undergraduate Chair of the department. The deadline for Independent Study in the Fall Term 2001 is September 26, 2001.

Occasionally a student will have an opportunity to work with a compnay or institution as an intern. As a result, the English department has decided to offer their concentrators one academic credit for student internships. Applications will be considered and approved by the Undergraduate Director. You may pick up an application form in 3187 Angell Hall.

ENGLISH 239 & 240

239-What is Literature and, 240-Introduction to Poetry are the two prerequisite courses to the concentration in English. 223-Creative Writing is added when doing the subconcentration in Creative Writing. There are many program paths a student can choose in English, which include the subconcentration in Creative Writing(non-Honors,Honors), English and Education Certification, and Honors in English. For further information on these programs and program plans in English, contact a concentration advisor in English by calling the main office at: (734) 764-6330.

English 350 & 351

This two-term sequence is designed to give students a principled sense of the range of literary works written in English; the first term will characteristically deal with works produced before the later seventeenth century - to the time of Milton, that is; the second term will begin at that point and proceed to the present. These courses will be open to English concentrators and to non-concentrators alike.

English 370, 371, & 372

Each of these courses will range over the materials of the periods indicated below in one or more of a variety of ways. Some may be multi-generic surveys; some may focus on the development during the period of specific genres; some may be topical, others formal in their principle of organization. All sections will emphasize the development of student skill in writing essays analyzing the materials and evaluating the approaches in question.

UPPER-LEVEL WRITING REQUIREMENT

Students enrolling in English courses that fulfill the Upper Level Writing Requirement for LSA must select the designation at registration. Please check the English Department's website to find courses listed as fulfilling the ULWR.


ENGLISH 124. College Writing: Writing and Literature.

Instructor(s):

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

By connecting the two terms of its title, Writing and Literature aims to help prepare the student to produce the range and quality of expository prose expected in college courses. Works of literature will be considered for their effective use of language and argument. They will serve as reference points for thinking and writing strategies. Characteristically, sections of English 124 will involve the writing of 20-30 pages of revised prose, with considerable attention given to the preparation of drafts and to revision. The literary works which will serve as points of reference will vary from section to section and from term to term.

For a variety of reasons it may be necessary for instructors to change courses or sections prior to the first day of class, although we try to keep this to a minimum. As a result, individual course descriptions are not available.

Course description This composition class uses the study of literature to aid us in developing our ability to think analytically and to inspire the creation of sophisticated, polished prose. We will learn to read closely and critically important texts from a variety of genres and periods that are concerned with representations of madness, crime, and punishment-depictions of which continue to haunt our imaginations today via literature, TV dramas, and news programs. While exploring the questions prompted by these works (How do we discern insanity from sanity? How do we define criminality? What are the differences between legality and morality? Are the punishments portrayed appropriate to their respective crimes? Are there justifiable crimes?) and applying the basic principles of literary analysis to our readings, we will simultaneously cultivate the skills necessary to producing college-level argumentative writing: constructing viable theses, providing proper structural organization, using textual evidence to support your claims, improving mechanics and style, and thoroughly revising drafts. The pace of this course will be intense, the demands on your time and energy challenging-but I hope the results of your motivation and diligence will also be rewarding.

This course aims to develop our command of a specific writing situation, namely college-level writing about literature. Through workshops and group discussion, we clarify how writing about literature is like, and unlike, other sorts of writing that we practice in college and "real life." Our texts range widely, including at least one novel, lots of short stories, a play and a film. This array of literary genres has the simple appeal of novelty; but it also diversifies our interpretive challenges and vocabularies (for example, the critical vocabulary of fiction analysis differs from that of film analysis). Our goal is to rise to one classic definition of literature: to find both instruction and delight!
