Research Intensive / Honors Program
Director: Jennifer Rust, Ph.D.
The Department of English invites students (Sophomore status or above) to apply for our selective Research Intensive English concentration. This track within the major, which admits a maximum cohort of 12 English majors per academic year, offers our most talented majors opportunities for pursuing literary and rhetorical studies in smaller, more rigorous settings. Research Intensive students must take at least 2 Research Intensive Seminars (while maintaining a 3.75 or higher GPA in English) and must complete a Senior research project in either the fall or the spring semester of their senior year. Students will graduate with the Research Intensive designation, and will leave our program well prepared for advanced study in English.
