ENGL 6240: Chaucer

This course is cross-listed with ENGL 4240, and will be a mixed graduate/undergraduate classroom; please see the course description for ENGL 4240 for details.

Students in the graduate section will do the same reading and minor assignments as the undergraduates. They may choose one of three "tracks" for their major assignments (to be decided upon within the first month of class, in dialogue with the professor). "Recommended" tracking below is not prescriptive, and I will entertain alternate project ideas within reason.

Honors Option

If you are a UGA student enrolled in the Honors College, you probably want to know whether you can take one of my upper-division courses for honors credit (aka "do the Honors Option"). The short answer, usually, is yes. For all Honors Option students, I require that you do 10 pages of extra formal writing (or its intellectual equivalent - more on that in a moment) and maintain a high level of performance (equivalent to high B and A work) throughout the course.
