|Description:||The study of English literature is an exploration of the ways in which we express or create worlds through language. By examining works of literature published in English, we not only imagine other worlds and forms of human experience, but also learn how to become better readers, writers, editors, researchers, and critical thinkers. During studies for a degree in English, you will investigate literature from a variety of critical standpoints, historical periods, and geographical areas; research the interactions of literary, political, and intellectual cultures; and explore timely and important issues through literature. You may also write poetry, fiction, and plays; edit literary works and journals; and analyze theatrical productions. And you will gain a broader understanding of literary culture and learn to communicate effectively.
The Honours degree in English allows you to benefit from a more structured, comprehensive program in English literature that teaches you the skills to undertake independent, original research. The Honours seminars allow for intensive study and research into selected areas of literary culture, while the seminars and the capstone Honours Colloquium provide opportunities to practice presentation skills and work as part of a community of inquiry. The Honours degree may be of especial interest if you have a keen interest in literary culture, want to work in professions such as journalism, editing, communications, digital media, and publishing, or want to go on to advanced studies through graduate work in English, library studies, or publishing. You may also choose to enroll in a Double Honours program, which allows you to combine advanced studies of English literature with studies in another discipline.
