Majors and Courses

The English curriculum at PC is both traditional and innovative at the same time. You can take courses in the classics, like Shakespeare, the Romantics, Chaucer, the American Renaissance, or African American literature. We also offer courses in contemporary areas like Postcolonial Literature, Southern Women’s Writing, and the Modern Novel. Consider courses in film, such as Introduction to World Cinema and Silent Film. Or perhaps you’d like to take some creative writing workshops or a literary theory class. Several members of our department direct interdisciplinary minors such as Media Studies, Southern Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies.
