The Department of English at Grove City College offers students meaningful opportunities to conduct literary research under the guidance of experienced faculty. Students who have completed all of the courses offered in a particular area of study may apply to do an Independent Study or Independent Research project with a particular faculty member.
You may also submit papers for inclusion in the annual Christian Writers Conference sponsored by the Department of English or for publication in The Quad, the department's student-edited literary review that is published quarterly.
Once you’ve completed English 450: Literary Criticism and Theory, you may apply to participate in English 488: Honors Seminar. During this course, you will complete either a 35 to 50 page thesis analyzing a work of literature or write a creative work of comparable length.
