The Program in Victorian Studies is designed for students who wish to pursue an in-depth exploration of the assumptions, ideas, ideals, institutions, society, and culture of 19th-century Britain. Majors select from lists of required courses from the departments of English and History and recommended courses from the departments of Art, History, and Philosophy. The program culminates in a senior thesis--a long research paper, interdisciplinary in nature--written under the direction and guidance of two faculty members from two departments. Students may choose to spend junior year abroad in Britain. The program also offers a correlate sequence.
