Thanks to the Department of World Languages & Literature and the Department of English, the Office of General Education was able to hold seats in Literary Analysis and Interpretation (LAI)-tagged courses for fall 2023.
317 students who have not satisfied this general education requirement were admitted in fall 2020, spring 2021, and fall 2022. Due to concerns for student progress through the Common Curriculum (CC) by these admit cohorts in particular, this one-time initiative hopes to assist more students in accessing LAI-tagged courses to complete the requirement.
The email below will be sent to students later today, March 27.
Questions or concerns can be directed to the Office of General Education via email at email@example.com.

Title: Hey Mustang, we’ve held a seat this Fall for you to complete your CC Literary Analysis and Interpretation requirement
March 27, 2023
Dear Mustang –
The Office of General Education wants to inform you that we saved you a seat this Fall in a Literary Analysis and Interpretation (LAI)-tagged course.
As of March 21, your Degree Progress Report (DPR) indicated you had not satisfied your LAI requirement. As you approach graduation, sometimes registering for the necessary courses is more challenging, so we wanted to help you fulfill this Common Curriculum (CC) requirement.
We have held a limited number of seats for LAI-tagged courses this Fall for you. The catch? They are only available during continuing student enrollment, and after this time, the held seats will be released. The following courses have held seats for you:
|World Languages Department
|WL 2330 – Spanish Civilization
|WL 3326 – Introduction to French Cinema
|WL 2333 – Italian American Cinema
|WL 3371 – Latam Through Film
|WL 3381 – GrecoRoman World in Lit & Film
|WL 3383 – Latin American Women Writers
|ENGL 1320 – Cultures of Medieval Chivalry
ENGL 1330 – The World of Shakespeare
ENGL 2311 – Poetry
ENGL 2312 – Fiction
ENGL 2313 – Drama
ENGL 2318 – Intro To Digital Literature
ENGL 3320 – Topics in Medieval Literature
ENGL 3347 – Topics in Am Lit in Age of Rev
ENGL 3355 – Transatlantic Encounters III
ENGL 3362 – African-American Literature
ENGL 3363 – Chicana/Chicano Literature
Can’t fit in an LAI course this Fall? Consider SMU Intersessions or plan to complete it in the spring.
Special thanks to the Department of World Languages & Literature and the Department of English for working with us to hold seats.
We know enrollment can be stressful, and registering for classes you need to graduate may add to this. We hope these saved seats can help you fulfill your general education requirements.
