Curriculum Overview

“Literature is not exhaustible, for the sufficient and simple reason that a single book is not. A book is not an isolated entity: it is a narration, an axis of innumerable narrations. One literature differs from another, either before or after it, not so much because of the text as for the manner in which it is read.”
- Jorge Luis Borges

The UIS English Department encourages students develop one of three concentrations. English majors may pursue a conventional degree in Literature, choose to concentrate in Writing, Rhetoric and Language, or complete the concentration/minor in Teacher Education.
