Approved Courses

Students can apply one literature course from another department or program toward the major. While most such courses are likely to be in translation, literature courses in the original language will also be accepted for credit. These courses will not count toward any of the English department’s distribution requirements, nor will they count toward one of the required 300-level courses for the major. You must get your major advisor's approval for any non-English literature course you wish to apply towards the major.

JYA literature courses in the languages of the host country may be counted with certain exceptions: courses taught in English translation may only be counted if language proficiency is neither a requirement nor the goal of the JYA program in question. The associate chair will be in charge of making the final determination.

Students may receive credit toward the major for other courses offered in the programs (when taught or team-taught by members of the department) upon the approval of the curriculum committee. Please consult with the chair if you have questions about a particular course.
