<p>Anyone know anything about the Undergrad English Program?? Strengths, Weaknesses? I'm trying to decide which Ivy is the best for this.</p>

<p>Harvard's English department is very strong and respected.</p>

<p>It's terrific, and one of the most popular majors.</p>

<p>If you are interested in English, you might also look at some of the smaller interdisciplinary programs like History & Literature. My friends in this program had a phenomenal experience.</p>

<p>Do you know anything about the Creative Writing aspects of the program??</p>

<p>Yeah, it's possible to write a novel or screenplay as your senior thesis if you're good. At least two of my classmates have published novels so far. There are a lot of creative writing opportunities.</p>

<p>wow. but are you talking about the undergrad program??</p>

<p>Yes. The English graduate program is aimed at producing scholars, not novelists.</p>

<p>Do people attending English courses choose Linguistics courses also? I just happen to love both:)</p>

<p>Not as a rule, but you certainly can. I was a psychology major and took linguistics because I was fascinated by it.</p>

<p>i heard english at Harvard is quite difficult, thats is why i took it at Oxford where i excelled in many subjects and drank tea and ate crumpets. tata Sir william Drake</p>

<p>HAHAHAHA!!! NYPlaya...I LOVE YOU!!!!! And how is the program at Oxford????</p>

<p>I got related fields credit in English (if you're in the elective program, you can use up to two "related fields" courses for concentration credit) for taking an intro linguistics course over the summer. Not sure why, as the two had absolutely nothing to do with each other, but I'm not complaining.</p>
