There is no listing of 4980 English Studies Abroad Topics because these are not always MTSU courses. For more information, talk to your advisor. Some of the above courses are offered regularly while others are offered infrequently. Students with a special interest in a particular course should let advisor know, so that this information may be conveyed to the appropriate instructor. New special topics courses are always being developed. If a course you want to take is not on this list but is on the schedule, it is because the course is newly approved.
