|Description:||The English Department provides a wide selection of courses and programs designed to appeal to students with both specialist and non-specialist interests. First-year work focusses on the development of writing skills and methods of literary analysis, while second-year courses offer introductions to various national literatures and genres. Upper-level courses deal with many geographical, chronological, and generic approaches to literature. Some specialize in single figures (Shakespeare, Chaucer, Blake) or genres (Canadian fiction, Romantic poetry); others survey particular periods (Eighteenth-century literature, Victorian poetry and prose) or offer further study in language (History of English Language, Advanced Composition). In addition, the Department annually offers special studies courses in which the content changes according to the various instructors’ interests.
The Combined Major in English and French (Canadian Literature) is not a double major in English and French, but a single B.A. degree program composed of selected courses from each department. The term "Canadian Literature" will be formally recognized on the transcript. Students should consult either department about choice of courses.
