With a national concentration of more than 2,500 schools, the English major has become an increasingly important college education for U.S. students.
But the breadth of its curriculum has been a source of controversy in recent years, and the college’s board of trustees voted this month to take steps to address some of the concerns.
The college has been the target of several lawsuits since it was founded in the 1930s, but the board said in a statement this week that it has no plans to stop offering the degree and that it will continue to offer the major.
The board also said that it is considering a change in the curriculum for the next academic year, though it did not provide further details.
