If you decide to study away, you should be sure, when planning your courses, to keep these two departmental policies in mind:

The level and period requirements for the major should be fulfilled with courses from Amherst College English Department offerings.

No more than two English-related courses outside the department may be counted towards the overall major requirement of 10 classes.

It is recommeneded to consult your English Advisor to make a plan for fufilling your requirements before studying away.
