Undergraduate study at uWaterloo English offers you a range of courses covering topics from medieval literature to graphic novels, and from classical rhetoric to digital media design. You can take four-year honours or general degrees in three areas:
You can enrich your Honours degree with specializations in creative writing, digital media studies, global literature, or technical writing. And if you'd like to combine study with work experience, you can take your Honours English degree in co-op mode. For an overview of your options, see the Undergraduate programs page.
Your degree will introduce you to the world of English studies and provide you with writing skills, critical savvy, and broad cultural knowledge. Because our class enrolments are capped at 25 to 40, your professor will know your name. See the links below for more information.
