Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General

English scholars ask questions such as: Did William Shakespeare write all the plays that bear his name? How are monsters depicted in The Hobbit? Why did many female authors use pen names during the Victorian era?

English is a broad and integrated field where reading and writing intersect, and issues in critical thinking come into play. This program will introduce you to literature from specific historical periods, international literature, specific genres, and literature focusing on current and relevant social themes. During the course of your studies, you'll gain research and analytical capabilities, creative thinking skills, and the ability to persuasively communicate both verbally and in writing.
