English Workshop

You are invited to the 2018 English Department Spring Workshop

Featuring food, conversation, and a brief workshop about English Studies in our Department.

WHO: Attending ONE workshop is mandatory for all English majors. To be clear, you cannot graduate with an English degree if you have not attended at least one workshop. We encourage you to attend in the first year that you declare your English major. English majors are warmly attended as many workshops as they desire. The readings change each academic year.

Alumni are welcome; please contact the English Department Chair if you are a graduate of our Department who is interested in attending.

Spring Workshop

  • When: Friday, February 2, 2018
  • Time: 12:15 pm to 2:15 pm
  • Where: Upper Lodge A

WHY: Meet faculty and fellow students, discover what the English Department at UCCS has to offer, and make an informed decision about which emphasis in English you are choosing to pursue. The emphasis you choose (Rhetoric, Literature, Professional-Technical Writing, Secondary or Elementary Education) will impact the courses you’ll take in the future. In addition, many of our majors pursue a minor in Creative Writing.

READING: We’re asking all attendees to read a brief and innovative reading before the workshop. The reading is available through Blackboard (Bb). Please print it out, annotate it, and bring it with you to the workshop.

  • Log in to Blackboard at bb.uccs.edu
