Option 2 complements the English major with the study of foreign literature in translation taught by those who are expert in the original language.

To fulfill Option 2, a student needs to complete two upper-division foreign-literature-in-translation courses to be selected from a list available in the English department office. The literature-in-translation courses must be taken for a letter grade.

Students interested in petitioning a course outside the English Department to count for credit towards the major (including the Foreign Language in Translation courses) must provide the syllabus for the course. The Undergrad Chair will be able to evaluate the course to see if there is enough course content to count for an English course. Please email the Undergrad Advisor the course syllabus and they will assist you with the petition process.

A list of all approved foreign literature in translation courses, as well as offerings identified for the upcoming quarter, can be obtained at the English Department office or via the PDF below.
