Major Electives (27 credits)

There are five basic requirements for the MA in English Component of this concentration, which will account for at least 12 credits of the 27 credits. A single course may go toward satisfying more than one requirement. For example, a LIT 6246 Major Authors course on Toni Morrison would satisfy 3 criteria: the one Major Authors requirement, one of the "later" requirements, and one of the American requirements. The graduate coordinator may substitute one film course (or equivalent), such as FIL 5934 for one of these requirements. Course descriptions for international offerings will clarify whether the course counts as "early" or "late".

SELECT 12 credits:
One course must be "early" according to below definition.
One course must be "late" according to below definition.
One course must be American literature (AML 5XXX or AML 6XXX).
One course must be British literature (AML 5XXX or AML 6XXX).
