|Description:||The study of English literature is important both for the understanding of particular literary texts and for the insight it provides into how we interpret the world and our place in it. English helps you develop skills in research, analysis, critical thinking, interpretation, and persuasive writing.
First-year English courses offer you an introduction to different approaches to reading and writing about literature, using texts from a range of genres and time periods. In second year you may choose from courses focusing on introduction to literary periods, Shakespeare, Canadian literature, and American literature. Third-year courses expand on your second-year choices, including studies in British literature in different periods, Canadian and American literature, gender and literature, postcolonial literature, dramatic literature, creative writing, and film, genre, and cultural studies. In fourth year you will be able to pursue “selected topics” courses, which allow you to pursue special interests, either through the particular courses offered that year or through individual study and research under the supervision of a faculty member.
