Study of Old English prose or poetry in the original language. Sequence with ENG 428, 430. Repeatable twice when topic changes.
OEII: The Adventure Continues! In OEII we’ll read a varied selection of shorter poems and prose in Old English and perform a (virtual) reenactment of The Battle of Maldon. You’ll get some of the finer points of OE grammar and we’ll review other grammatical concepts as needed. The course will also familiarize you with some of the basic language tools used for studying and reconstructing Old English.
Upper-division Elective courses allow students to choose (or “elect”) courses or faculty specific to their own developing interests, enabling them thereby to shape their own educational experience.
English Minor courses offer students centuries of cultural experience and representation in poetry, prose, drama, film, TV, new media, and folk artifacts. The English minor can focus and extend the values of a liberal arts education, while also providing extensive training in writing, speaking, and critical thinking.
