The eagerly anticipated list of Fall 2017 Fordham English courses is now on line. Click here to see both undergraduate and graduate courses at the Lincoln Center and Rose Hill campuses, as well as English courses offered through the School of Professional and Continuing Studies (PCS). 

  • Undergraduate English Majors and English Majors with a Creative Writing Concentration: If you haven't fulfilled your Theory Requirement already, take "Theories of Comparative Literature" (at LC) or "Theory for English Majors" (at RH). 
  • Take pre-1800 literature courses such as "The Medieval Traveler," "Early Renaissance Poetry," and "Opening Heads: Writing About Minds and Brains Before 1800." Plus we're offering Shakespeare courses on both campuses, as usual. 
  • Take post-1800 courses such as "New Wave Immigrant Literature," "Virginia Woolf," "Disobedience in Literature," and "Comparative Studies in Empire." 
  • If you're at Lincoln Center, consider electives offered through PCS, including "Publishing: Theory and Practice;" "The Pearl Poet and His Book;" "Black Atlantic Literature: Imagining Freedom;" and "Fiction into Film." 
  • You can choose from Creative Writing courses such as "A Writer in New York;" "Fiction Boot Camp;" and "The Long Poem;" as well as "Writing for Teens in the Adult World;" "Literary Arts Management;" and "Flawless/Freedom/Formations: Writing on Race and Popular Culture." 
  • Advanced undergraduates can take the Department Seminar on "Novels by Women from Jane Austen to Toni Morrison," as well as Senior Values Seminars on "The Bible in English Poetry" and "Extraordinary Bodies." 
  • If you're an advanced undergraduate looking for an additional challenge, or for a sense of what graduate school might be like, you may want to try a graduate course that's open to undergraduates. "Natural History and Ecology;" "African American Autobiography;" and "Introduction to Early Modern Studies" are all being offered at Rose Hill, while "Modern Language Politics" will be at Lincoln Center.
  • Graduate Students may also want to take--alongside "Research Methods;" the "Pedagogy/Theory Practicum;" the "Masters Capstone;" and/or "Academic Issues"--such courses as "French of England: Texts and Literacies in a Multilingual Culture" or "Late Medieval Women." 
  • You can also consider the graduate classes being offered at the Lincoln Center campus: "Modern Language Politics" and "Concepts of Culture."
