Undergraduate Programs

Whether a student's interest lies in taking just a course in English (say, in creative writing), or, rather, in majoring with English Honours, we offer a host of options and course types to select from at the undergraduate level.

To complete a degree in English, a student selects to register in one of nine available programs

Programs vary in length (three or four years) and in number of required and elective courses (depending on student interests).

First and second-year courses survey a literary period or theme, and introduce students to modes of critical thinking.

Third- and fourth-year courses present special topics (for example, the topic of rhetoric in Renaissance Literature) and a deeper and closer look at given subjects.

Students select courses according to categories of study. Categories include: Canadian Literature, American and World Literatures Written in English, Early and Later British Literature, Language and Theory, Creative Writing, among others.
