About

The English major at Boston College offers a wide range of courses while introducing fundamental skills in close reading, literary analysis, and critical thinking. You’ll have the freedom to shape a program suited to your intellectual and creative interests while sharpening skills in critical thinking, analysis, argumentation, and articulation.

Overview

As an English major you’ll become deeply familiar with major developments in British, American, Anglophone, and Multicultural Literatures, choosing courses that explore issues fundamental to the human condition through multiple periods, cultures, and approaches. 

Boston College’s First-Year Writing Seminar is a  workshop designed to help you develop and practice skills in writing and research. 

Goals

One goal of FWS is to teach you a variety of strategies to practice in a range of writing situations which, in turn, will help you to understand and plan for subsequent writing challenges in your future academic, professional, and personal lives. 

Another goal of FWS is to give you the tools and the incentive to keep writing after the course has ended: in other courses, in your community, and for your own pleasure. 

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Capstone: Vision Quest: A Multicultural Approach
  • British Literature and Culture
  • Medieval Arthurian Literature
  • Milton
  • Chaucer and Gower
