Possible electives (in addition to thethree required English 520 courses) include those offered by Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies, specifically IGS courses in the 530s—which are Special Topics courses offered through IGS and taught by the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies. These courses cover a broad range of cultural objects, from literature of France, to narratives of the Japanese during World War II, to films of the Global South; hence, these courses are deemed suitable for the student of English literature. Such electives cannot be taken by the thesis option MA in English student.

Directed Reading Courses

Graduate students are expected to enroll in the courses offered. Under exceptional circumstances, a graduate student may apply to take a Directed Reading course. A student wishing to do so is required to seek agreement from a faculty member able to supervise the course and obtain approval from the Critical Studies Graduate Committee.
