So the end is in sight … now it’s time to show us what you can do. In this course we will work through the process of creating a formal thesis in the form of a literary analysis essay that demonstrates the critical skills you have developed in your years as an English major. You will pick one literary work and dive deeply into it to engage the critical conversation surrounding it. The 10-15 page essay you produce will not only demonstrate your skills, but also serve as a formal writing sample for those of you intending to pursue graduate education. (Prerequisite: Completion of a minimum of 105 hours towards your program)
