First Cohort of Distinguished English Majors Presented Their Research
December 11, 2019
On December 5, 2019, the Department of English's first cohort of Distinguished English Majors presented their projects. This select group of undergraduate students were invited to apply to the program because each had a record of high academic achievement, and they were accepted into the program based on their thoughtful choice of topics and writing samples. These students have worked with their advisers in our department for the last two semesters in order to produce theses in both the creative and scholarly fields.
