*One pre-1700 course
English Majors, minors and ID students all share two requirements. The first is one Shakespeare course, one of which is offered each term. The second requirement is a pre-1700 class, listed as EGL 202 through EGL 215, which covers courses in Medieval, Renaissance, Restoration or Early American literatures.
The pre-1700 and the Shakespeare requirements must be fulfilled with two separate courses. A second course in Shakespeare may count as an elective, but the department wishes to clarify that this practice should not substitute for taking a pre-1700 course.
