English Colloquia

English majors must attend English department colloquia during their academic careers. The department will offer an average of three colloquia every semester and may occasionally designate a non-departmental colloquium as qualifying for this requirement.

Sign-in sheets will be at all English department colloquia, and attendance records will be kept in the English department office. It is the student's responsibility to sign in at each event they attend, and to keep track of their progress toward fulfilling this requirement. Information on colloquium attendance can be accessed in the English department office.

Among the new and ever-changing list of speakers and presenters, visiting authors and inspiring lecturers are annual events in the English department (dear and recurring friends on the colloquium schedule): The List, What Can You Do With an English Major?, and the Literary Pub Fest.
