Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General
Description:The programs offered in the English Department are designed to give students a solid, broadly-based grounding in their areas of focus. The two streams, Literature (ELIT) and Rhetoric and Media Studies (ERMS), enable students to develop skills in textual analysis, interpretation, and research, express their thinking clearly and creatively in written, oral, and visual media, and engage with cultural, critical, and artistic life in our time, as well as in the times and places encountered in texts.

The Literature stream (ELIT) achieves these objectives primarily by exploring the historical traditions of literatures in English written in Britain, the Americas, and areas of the world formerly colonized by Britain. The core 'group courses' are arranged primarily chronologically, with Group One (Medieval and Early Modern periods), Group Two (Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries), Group Three (Modern and Contemporary literatures), and Group Four (North American literatures). Students develop increasingly sophisticated critical reading skills by analyzing texts from a variety of critical perspectives. These readings form the basis for students to create their own arguments through a range of process-based writing assignments and oral presentations.
