Undergraduate Program

The undergraduate English program at NYU offers a full and varied curriculum in literary history, critical theory, dramatic literature, theater history, and literary culture. The program offers a major or minor in English and American literature.

Qualified students in the English major are encouraged to apply for the honors program, which culminates in the writing of an honors thesis during the senior year under a faculty member's supervision.

The Department also offers its majors and minors elective credit for internships in publishing, at literary agencies, and at other professional offices.  

NOTE: The Creative Writing minor is now administered through the Creative Writing Program. For more information, visit http://cwp.fas.nyu.edu/page/undergraduate.
