ENGL 1410 Themes

ENGL 1410 is a themed course. Each instructor selects a course theme, and all student research relates to the course theme in some way. This page lists and provides information about the themes taught by individual instructors.

You can look for an instructor’s name in the course schedule (in your student portal) while you are registering for courses. ENGL 1410 is primarily offered in Spring semesters, so there are a wider selection of teachers and themes offered in Spring. A small number of 1410 sections are offered each Fall and Summer semester.
