During pre-registration (Period 1 and Period 2), registration in most 200-, 300-, and 400-level English classes is through MyUW unless otherwise noted in the Time Schedule. Instructors will have add codes beginning the first day of classes (at the start of Period 3), which they may distribute at their discretion. If you hope for an add code, be sure to attend class on the first day and speak with the instructor.
First Week Attendance
Because of heavy demand for many English classes, students who do not attend all reguarly-scheduled meetings during the first week of the quarter may be dropped from their classes by the department. If students are unable to attend at any point during the first week, they should contact their instructors ahead of time. The Department requests that instructors make reasonable accommodations for students with legitimate reasons for being absent; However, the final decision rests with the instructor and space is not guaranteed for absent students even if they contact the instructor in advance. (Contact information can be found in the department directory or obtained by calling the the Undergraduate Advising Office, (206) 543-2634.) Students who do not plan to attend should drop themselves from the course using the MyUW system.
The course descriptions found through the links below have been written by individual teaching faculty each quarter to provide more specific information about their approaches than what can be found in the UW General Catalog. When individual descriptions are not available, students can consult the UW General Catalog for brief descriptions. (Although we try to have as accurate and complete information as possible, this schedule remains subject to change.)
Archives: the English Department website contains instructor course descriptions going back to 1997. If you need older course descriptions, please consult the UW's General Catalog archive for the appropriate year.
Note on Future Quarters: course offerings for future quarters listed below are tentative and are subject to change. Consult the UW Time Schedule for the most up-to-date schedule and registration information.
