The master's degree enables our students to study literatures in English from a wide range of national and transnational contexts, historical periods and genres. It addresses questions about what people understand by the idea of literature in different times and places and why it matters; about who should have access to literature, either as readers or writers; about the power of literature to forge communities and, in doing so, to be a force for change; and about how these issues are influenced by broader legal, technological, political and social contexts.


Test Scores:
  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 580] or Canadian Academic English Language Assessment [min. 70] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 86] or International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 6.5]
Additional Admission Requirements:
    The normal admission requirement for the master's program is a B.A. (Honours) (or the equivalent) in English language and literature, with at least a high Honours standing (normally B+ or better).

    Possession of the normal entrance standing is not in itself, however, an assurance of admission into the program.
