|From novels, films, and essays to graphic novels, video games, and digital media, students in Laurentian University’s English Literature, Media, and Writing program read widely, learning how imaginative and persuasive writing convinces us that the worlds it depicts could be real and that the claims it makes are true. Studying in small classes, our students develop the skills necessary to think critically about what they read and watch, becoming practiced in grasping and explaining how different forms of writing convey complex ideas and information in sophisticated ways. Provoked by the real-world questions and problems they encounter in what they read, our students work closely with faculty members to develop and refine their writing skills in diverse media, creating imaginative and research-informed responses to these concerns.
The English Literature, Media, and Writing program offers students composition-focused courses in science and health communication, creative writing, environmental communication, and documentary filmmaking. Alongside these, students may take courses to study children’s literature, detective fiction, postcolonial studies, Victorian literature, and early modern drama. Students interested in editing and publishing may volunteer for Sulphur, a literary journal edited and published by the students of the English Arts Society. Each year, student excellence in literary criticism, filmmaking, professional communication, and creative writing is celebrated through various awards and public events.
