Program Information

School:Cape Breton University
Faculty:School of Arts and Social Sciences
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General
Description:The English language is central to the way billions of people work, play, think and relate to one another. The English program at CBU teaches you to become an expert user of the language, understanding the history and applications in all its linguistically splendid detail and nuance. A big part of that nuance will come from understanding humanity’s richest literary tradition, engaging with some of the world’s most profound imaginations. Studying English means learning to think not just critically, but curiously and courageously. It’s opening your eyes to cutting-edge ideas while also being skeptical and analytical. Studying English means coming to understand the way our language shapes us, our societies and even our physical environment. We study how we can use language – and its texts – to understand our past, to remake ourselves and to understand the world around us.
