Future undergraduates

We are an English department that will surprise you. 

Our innovative faculty teach everything from Chaucer to global English literature, from classical rhetoric to digital media design—and in ways you'd never expect.

Our unique undergraduate programs provide the tools you need to develop your analytical and critical capacities, your understanding of digital media, your sensitivity to language and its uses, your practical writing abilities, and your love of literature. Let us show you how to turn your love of reading, writing, and design into a solid foundation for your future career and help you have an impact on the world.

First year English classes at the University of Waterloo are designed to appeal to a wide range of interests. Because most classes are small—with enrolment capped at 30 to 40—your professor will know your name.
