Advanced Topic Seminars

english department

Advanced Topic Seminars provide our students with the opportunity for imaginative, intensive discussion and research on some of the most exciting subjects in the study of English today. While the content of these seminars varies--some take up topics in history and culture; some, the life and work of individual writers; some, interdisciplinary topics or contemporary theory-- each seminar trains students in critical thinking and independent research. Students interested in writing Honors theses are encouraged to take at least one ATS.  Limited to 15.
