The Victorian Studies Program concentrates upon Great Britain during the reign of Queen Victoria, extending its attention in certain fields back into the last decades of the eighteenth century, up to the outbreak of World War I, and out into America, Continental Europe and other areas in the nineteenth century. The program is open to all graduate students. Courses within the program are chosen from a range of offerings in the following departments or programs: African studies, comparative literature, cultural studies, economics, English, fine arts, folklore, gender studies, geography, history, history and philosophy of science, philosophy, and Victorian studies.

Course Requirements

Consult the chairperson of the program for courses outside of Victorian studies that are acceptable for the certificate.
