The Department of English Language and Literature will offer a new undergraduate major in creative writing, beginning in Autumn Quarter 2017. First-, second- and third-year students will have the option to major in creative writing, or take on a double major in creative writing and any major they wish to pursue, including English. A minor in English and creative writing also will be open to students outside those programs.
Peggy Xu, AB’17, has been awarded the Lionel Pearson Fellowship from the Society for Classical Studies. The Pearson Fellowship is awarded annually to one student among nominees from Classics departments in the United States and Canada.
