English DUG

Welcome to the English Department Undergraduate Group (DUG) 

Have you heard about the English concentration but never quite known what it entails or how it differs from a Literary Arts or Comparative Literature concentration?

To join the English DUG and/or arrange to chat with a current English concentrator, email englishdug.brown@gmail.com. Learn about their experience as an English concentrator or learn about Honors in English, Honors in Nonfiction Writing, and English Department Prizes. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

DUG Student Leader: Anna Poon (fall 2013);
Adison Marshall (spring 2014)

DUG Faculty Advisor: Professor Stephen Foley
