What are EIU English graduate courses really like?

To help students select courses, each semester the graduate faculty in English write individualized descriptions for each section for all courses.  These tell you a lot more about what to expect than the brief descriptions in the University catalog.  

Since some courses are only offered in either spring or fall semester, we maintain the previous semester's course offerings to give you an idea of the likely choices for the future.
