New Students

Welcome to English at Yale!

We are excited to share with you the opportunities offered by our classes and our major. To that end, we hope you will visit our table at the Academic Fair on August 29, 1:00-2:30pm in the Schwartzman Center. The DUS, ADUS, and Director of Creative Writing (DCW) will be on hand to answer all your questions about particular English courses, the English Major, and the Writing Concentration.

Because almost all of our teaching happens in small seminars, we encourage you to attend the relevant sessions: they should help you to navigate the preference selection process and give you a sense of how our courses have been adapted to the online environment. We feel lucky that even in this environment, our modes of instruction will allow students and teachers to form genuine communities of inquiry around the texts that we read together. We look forward to getting to know you!
