|Reading literature, whether Christian or non-Christian works, whether from the past or from the present, provides an important perspective of the world we live in. Redeemer's English Literature program prepares students to find their place and calling in the world by equipping them to read analytically, speak clearly, and write persuasively, finding threads of common grace and redemption in all materials, and asking how is God using language and literature to redeem our broken world.
Right from the start, small seminar-style classes provide you with a broad overview of different literary genres. Class discussion is lead by professors who are actively contributing to their field and are excited to share their love of language and literature with students. First-year courses dig into different ways of reading and ways of writing through close readings of text and by critically analyzing texts through writing. Honing these foundational skills prepares students for future survey courses that dig into a more in-depth study of specific genres, styles, and time periods.
English Literature is a Bachelor of Arts degree. It is offered as an honours major, a major, and as a minor.
