Overview

Our courses introduce the vital practices of critical reading, writing about ideas and texts, and collaborative learning through discussion and debate. Whatever your taste in literature, you will encounter professors, peers, and courses to inspire and engage your love of literature.

English graduates move into careers in academia, teaching, social work, law, technical and creative writing, public relations, library science, publishing, communications, human resources, marketing, theatre, fi lm making, journalism, fashion, event management, and other fields that make use of advanced skills in research, critical analysis, and communications and writing.

English students are often interested in academic fields that require reading, analysis, research, and the process of developing compelling, coherent arguments—areas such as History, Great Books, Philosophy, or Journalism. You may also be interested in areas that relate to human experience and behaviour—Psychology, Gerontology, Anthropology, Criminology, and others.
