Registration for the summer opens on March 5th at 9:00am Eastern time.
As of this moment we’re planning to run five courses over the summer. This is an ambitious amount of courses, as summers tend to have low enrollment (many students, like many professors–like me–follow the traditional fall/spring schedule). It is therefore highly possible that not all five courses will gain enough enrollment to actually remain open and run by the time the summer semester begins. Some may even be cut very early into registration if they attract little early interest. Two of the reasons I have five courses listed is to see (1) if in fact we have enough interest in summer courses to warrant this many courses, and (2) what courses students are interested in. If one of these classes fills up immediately and the other class attracts three students, the course with three students will have to close and this will also indicate that the first course is something our students want and the second course is largely not. I’ll use this information when scheduling future semesters. So here, as of this moment, are the summer listings:
- ENGL 509, Perspectives on the Essay, run by Dr. David Kilpatrick
- ENGL 510, Theory/Practice of Expository Writing, run by Dr. Sean Dugan
- ENGL 514, 20th Century American Poetry, run by Dr. Alison Matika (Note that this might appear as “Major Authors” on your registration screen–that’s just the generic title associated with the code. It’s 20th Century American Poetry).
ENGL 515 DLA, Sport Literature, run by Dr. David Kilpatrick
[Sorry, administration cut this course]
- ENGL 515 DLB, Advanced Creative Writing, run by Dr. Celia Reissig-Vasile (This might show as “Special Topics” but again, as with the 514, that’s the generic title for the course code. It is Advanced Creative Writing).
