English Requirements in the University Studies Program
Courses in the Department of English are integral to the University Studies Program (USP) experience. All first-year students are required to take a Writing-Based Inquiry Seminar (WBIS) course, which will be paired with either their Quest I or Quest II section. In addition, all students will take Advanced Writing/Connect as the capstone to their journey through the USP. Beyond these required courses, the Department of English offers a wide range of 200-level courses in literature and other aspects of English studies that students can use to satisfy USP requirements or to gauge their interest in pursuing an English major.
