Program Information

School:York University - Glendon Campus
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General
Description:Studying English at Glendon is different in numerous ways from studying it at many other places. The small class sizes and individualized attention of faculty to each student may characterize a typical North American "liberal arts college" experience, but our students get an added advantage: Glendon is part of York, a major research university. Practically, this means that our students get the best of both worlds: the intimate small-class liberal arts college experience on a gorgeous campus in the middle of Toronto, and access to all the resources of one of the best research universities in the country.
The courses in the English program are designed to fit into a four-year sequence of increasing specialization in English literary studies. Courses at the 1000- and 2000-levels are part of the Foundation Set which provides introductions to the field of literary study, transhistorical and transcultural surveys of literature and types of literature, and develops the essential skills of critical thinking and writing. Literary courses on the 3000-level study in depth historical periods and movements in the development of national literatures, as well as overviews of critical theory. Literary courses on the 4000-level focus on special topics inside the historical, cultural, national, and theoretical units studied on the 3000-level, and they place an emphasis on developing research skills including data-analysis, synthesis, and presentation.
