The General Program

effective Fall 2011

Students in the General Program must successfully complete 30 credits in ENGLISH courses numbered 300 or above. [Students must complete a course with a grade of C- or better to have it count toward the concentration requirements.] These courses must include at a minimum: 

  • three courses on literature written primarily before 1830, at least one of which must be on literature written primarily before 1600
  •  one course in American literature
  • one poetry course
  •  one course designated "New Traditions,"
    New Traditions Requirement. English concentrators will take at least one upper-division course that focuses on work by North America and/or British writers/artists of color, world Anglophone writer/artists of a range of identity categories (involving gender, sexuality, disability, and class) who reflect upon - and are in dialogue about - the differentials of social power and their representation.

The department will offer in any one term a considerable range of courses designed to meet these requirements. A list of which courses meet a given requirement will be available each year in the English Undergraduate Office, online at www.lsa.umich.edu, or from an English concentration advisor.

Concentrators should note that no more than one course in expository or creative writing may be counted toward the minimum 30 credits at the upper level required for the concentration, although students may elect any number of such courses, subject to availability of spaces and to College limits on total elections of courses in any one department. Also, no more than six upper-level credits of Independent Study may count towards the concentration. With written prior approval by the undergraduate administrator, courses elected in other departments or programs may on occasion be used as part of a concentration plan. Independent study projects cannot be used to meet Department program requirements.

Students considering the concentration in English should elect  ENGLISH 298 during the sophomore year. Then, while fulfilling the concentration requirements, they may elect such a pattern of courses as will provide the course of study they find most helpful and satisfying. Students are strongly encouraged to choose an optional area of specialization and take three upper-level courses within the subconcentration. A full list of areas of specialization is available in the English Undergraduate office, online, or from a concentration advisor. Please refer to the Handbook for English Concentrators for more information on how to design specific paths of study. All ENGLISH courses applied to the concentration must meet a minimum grade requirement of C-.
