In the spring semester of senior year, Wittenberg English majors will register for English 405: Senior Exercises, a one-credit course. Designed to allow graduating seniors to demonstrate their mastery of foundational concepts and skills in the major, English 405 consists of two parts:
* A written comprehensive examination, and
* An oral presentation at the Senior Symposium.
Because there are no class meetings for English 405, course credit is granted after the successful completion of these activities.

English majors must attend at least eight English Department colloquia during their academic careers. The Department will offer an average of three colloquia every semester and may occasionally designate a non-departmental colloquium as qualifying for this requirement.
