Fredonia English Courses

Tips for Course Selection

The English department's curriculum offers a variety of lenses for studying literature, culture, literacy, pedagogy, and literary criticism, history, and theory. Fredonia English department courses provide experiences from the wide world of texts and prepare students for emerging careers in pluralistic cultural and civic contexts.

Feel free to browse our detailed course descriptions for the upcoming semester, current semester, and recent semesters:

Before selecting a course, please consider the following:

  • You might find it useful to decide what is your purpose in selecting a course from the English department: curiosity? knowledge? involvement with issues? background for major or career?
  • Have you consulted your advisor?
  • Have you thought of emailing the instructor of the course?
  • It is strongly advised that you take a 200-level course in literature before taking a 300-level course.
  • 300-level courses are studies that usually require some research, perhaps an oral report, probably a major paper. These courses are intended for the serious student, but not exclusively for English majors.
  • 400-and 500-level courses are for advanced students who are ready for specialized study and research.

Student Story

Eli Klusek

"Learning with the same group of peers for the past three years has been incredible to say the least. Not only have we been learning the foundations that encapsulate the English Education major, but we are experiencing the joys of teaching together. Stepping into a new program like the BA/MA is going to be a learning experience for everyone involved, but there is a level of comfortability at play because we are all familiar with one another. This is a new and exciting experience for all of us."
