DescriptionEnglish Studies involves the historical and analytical study of literatures and cultures produced in English throughout the world – British, North American and Postcolonial – as well as the study of critical and cultural theory.

This program combines our long-standing commitment to the exploration of British, American, Canadian and Postcolonial literatures of all periods in the English language, with the study of their cultures and an emphasis upon theoretical concerns and transnational connections. Our aim is to advance inquiry into traditional historical fields of study as well as contemporary and popular culture; open students up to leading issues in current literary and cultural research; and encourage students’ independent interests. With student-oriented professional training in research and teaching, the program fosters a unique and valuable set of critical, analytical, and communications skills in our graduates. Through advanced coursework, field examinations in the student’s area of specialization, dissertation research and composition, and training in the activities of professional scholars, our program produces advanced, experienced critical thinkers, researchers and communicators who make original contributions to knowledge across disciplinary borders in the humanities and social sciences.
