|Description:||At Western, we study Canadian, British, American, global, and Indigenous literature. You can start with the earliest classics, like Beowulf. You can follow a contemporary novel, like Room, as it is adapted to stage and screen. English Studies at Western will make you a stronger professional and a clearer citizen, and it will support your humanity throughout your life.
You can complete this program as part of a Bachelor or Honours Bachelor degree. Registration in the honours degree usually begins in the second year, but admission may be gained in the third or fourth year if you meet requirements.
Interested in challenging yourself? Wondering how you might add an interdisciplinary approach to your degree? You might be interested in SASAH! The School of Advanced Studies in the Arts and Humanities is the flagship Program of Western’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities. Unique in Canada, the SASAH Program offers an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and community-engaged educational experience. When you graduate from SASAH, you receive an undergraduate Major in Arts & Humanities, plus a Major from an existing program, such as English Language and Literature.
