Program Information

School: Memorial University – St. John’s Campus
Faculty: Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: English Language and Literature, General
Description: The study of English focuses on two activities – reading and writing. In some courses, students may concentrate on writing. In others, the emphasis will be on reading and interpretation. But rarely are reading and writing separated. A degree in English is invaluable training in how language works.

In the Department of English you will encounter ideas, both new and old, and texts, both experimental and traditional. You will read some of the best works in literature and culture, and you will engage in provocative conversations about meaning, literary history, the future, your identity and your place in the world. All of our programs are designed to help you think critically, read closely, and write effectively.
