This program will be offered at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, which will appeal to students wishing to pursue a traditional English literature curriculum in a culturally vibrant setting. The University of Glasgow is renowned for the high caliber of its teaching, the prominence of its research centers (for example, in Romanticism, Scottish Studies, and Film & Television Studies) and its development of cutting-edge computing and information technologies. The University is located in the heart of the city of Glasgow, one of the most thriving cities of Europe, named European City of the Year in 1990. Known for its vibrant youth culture, its numerous cinemas, bookstores and pubs, Glasgow is also a city of parks and tree-lined streets, many of which surround the University. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a pre-registration orientation program that will introduce them to the city of Glasgow and the surrounding countryside. A special two day reading and touring field trip to an atmospheric retreat in the east of Scotland is planned, as are several other outings to cultural events and cultural sites in the city and surrounding area.
English 90: Literary Study at the University of Glasgow
English 91: Literary Study at the University of Glasgow
English 92: The purpose of English 92, when taken in Glasgow, is to enhance the experience of studying English and Scottish literature in a global, and more specifically British, context. The requirement may be fulfilled in one of three ways: by taking a course devoted to the study of European literature or the history of the English language; by taking a course in a field clearly relevant to the study of literature in English (e.g., history, art history, philosophy, media studies); by taking a course that immerses the student in some aspect of Scottish, British, or Celtic language, literature, culture or history. This course must be approved by the program director.
Students live either in University of Glasgow dormitories or other student housing in Glasgow.
To participate students must have completed all first-year requirements and one English course (other than 2, 3, 5 or English 7) with a grade of B or better. This course should come from the critical branch of the curriculum. (The English course requirement may, in certain circumstances, be waived by the director.)
