New Global English Literature and Culture track added to Undergraduate Major

A new track has been added to the undergraduate English major. The undergraduate track in Global English Literature and Culture (GELC) allows students in the English major to extend their study into the widest contexts of international literary achievement. As with other paths through the major, it will offer engagement with major works in the Anglo-American literary tradition and will provide strong preparation in writing. Additionally, students examine the spread of Anglophone literary culture around the world, a phenomenon that has existed from the earliest stages of English literature and that has recently become one of the most striking features of our global cultural condition.

For a detailed description of the new track, including course requirements and application procedures, you can download that information here.
