Gonzaga's Department of English offers a Bachelor degree in English (B.A) and offers two areas of emphasis: a Literature Concentration and a Writing Concentration.
  • The department curriculum represents the diversity of faculty expertise as well as the department’s belief that students should have more flexibility within their curricular choices. Founded on solid introductory writing and literature courses and covering a variety of genres, time periods, and theoretical approaches to texts, the English major now offers two areas of emphasis: a Literature Concentration and a Writing Concentration.
  • Students in both concentrations take the same foundational courses: a Core Writing course, lower-division courses on literary form and literary history, and an upper-division course on literature before 1660. All English majors must also take a course with a multicultural designation. Once students decide which concentration they will pursue, they study the curriculum specific to each concentration. If so motivated, they can complete both Concentrations.
