|School:||King’s University College|
|Field of Study:||English Language and Literature, General
|Description:||King’s English programs provide the pleasures and challenges of reading closely literary texts of our own time and many other periods and places. We offer courses in all the major historical periods of English, from medieval through contemporary; national literatures in English, including British, Canadian, American, and Postcolonial; courses in literary theory, drama, popular literature, film, children’s literature, creative writing, and more.
In our small classes and seminars, our students acquire knowledge and skills in analysis, writing, and public speaking. Our graduates thereby prepare themselves for careers in, for example, education, publishing, law, marketing, media and communication, public relations, business, and industry. In addition, the study of English allows us, as Wallace Stevens put it, to find ourselves “more truly and more strange.” Come study with us, and see how reading, writing, and thinking about literature can cultivate a lifetime of curiosity, wonder, and pleasure.
