Program Information

School:Algoma University
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General
Description:Our program educates students in modes of thought and methods of investigation that not only enrich the reading and understanding of language and literature, but are applicable to various disciplines outside the study of English. We teach students to be critical in their reading and thinking and clear in their writing and speaking. We encourage students to have a passion for reading, writing, and critically reflecting on the use of language wherever it is written or spoken.

Our department offers literature courses in all genres - drama, fiction, poetry, and prose - including writers and thinkers from around the world and from the medieval world to the present period. We also offer courses in creative writing and film. Our faculty has expertise across a range of Canadian, British, American, and postcolonial literatures, and a long-standing commitment to the study of the writers who reflect and shape the cultural histories of the people of the English-speaking world.
