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!
