During your studies, you will have an opportunity to read a wide range of national and historical literatures, including British, postcolonial, Canadian, and American, and take courses in rhetoric, digital media studies, professional writing, information design, and many other areas.

Your courses in English Language and Literature will give you insight into our world and our culture, into our human identity, into the ideas and issues that excite and inspire us, and into the connections between our present and past.
