All graduate courses are seminars. Enrolment is limited in these courses, because considerable contribution is expected from each member of the seminar. For such courses, the corresponding undergraduate survey course, or an acceptable equivalent, is ordinarily a prerequisite. This condition may be waived only by agreement of both the program coordinator and the professor offering the seminar. The specific topics of individual courses may vary, depending upon the interests and needs of professors and students. It is thus impossible to list in detail the many topics that may from time to time be offered. The schedule below lists only the major periods or forms of literature in which special topics courses may be available.

Special topics courses having the same course number may be taken more than once providing the course content is different and with the permission of both the program coordinator and the professor offering the course. More than one seminar or course numbered in sequence in any of the listed areas may be offered in a given term.

In the Fall term each year, the Department of English publishes a Graduate Handbook giving complete information as to specific topics of the courses to be offered in the upcoming academic year, with texts, reading assignments, and other details about requirements of the course, wherever possible. Students are welcome to write to or call the office for a copy of this handbook.

Not all of the following areas will necessarily be represented by course offerings in any one year.
