Program Information

School:Dawson College
Faculty:Creative & Applied Arts
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General
Description:If you enjoy reading and discussing literature, you will find a group of like-minded students and teachers in the Literature Profile. Our students have a passion for the written word; they are enthusiastic readers, and they are often aspiring writers. While literary study will offer you a chance to improve critical thinking and writing skills, it is also a discipline in its own right. The profile is designed for students who enjoy reading and analyzing novels, poems, plays, essays, and other works of literature.

Although the Literature Profile is not a creative writing or journalism profile, we do offer courses devoted to these disciplines, as well as a number of courses that encourage creative options. For example, you will take one or two creative writing courses, and you will also have the option of taking up to four journalism courses, even earning a journalism minor if you take all four.
