Post-Graduate Data


The English concentration introduces students to the study of literature written in English in a range of national and historical contexts. Concentrators will learn to analyze and think critically about a literary text as both a formal and historical document. They will also study the ways in which literature shapes, and is shaped by, issues in the contemporary world. Concentrators take one course providing them with historical grounding in English literature across three broad periods: 1) Medieval and Early Modern, 2) Enlightenment, Romantic, and Post-Romantic, and 3) 20th and 21st Century. The curriculum includes courses from the entire range of literature in English and a special "track" in Nonfiction Writing, which helps students strengthen their skills in critical writing, the research paper, journalism, creative writing, and nonfiction writing. One of the largest humanities concentrations at Brown, English may be pursued as the strong foundation for a liberal education and as a preparation for professional school and for graduate work in literature or other disciplines.

Here's what concentrators from the classes of 2012 and 2013 reported they were doing in their first year after graduation.
