Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General
Description:English is a broad and integrated field where reading and writing intersect, and issues in critical thinking come into play. As a student in our department you'll study texts and their contexts, and learn to read, think and write critically as they explore the world from a perspective that is exciting, inclusive, varied and fluctuating. You will unravel how English literature has evolved through time, examine historical contexts that shape contemporary literary, social, cultural and ethical dilemmas, and learn the techniques and terminology for investigating texts closely. As a student in our Bachelor of Arts (BA) program, you’ll study literature from specific historical periods (e.g., from Modern and Restoration literature to the very beginning of written English), international literature, specific genres (e.g. sci-fi and detective fiction), and literature focusing on current and important social themes (e.g. gender and race). The Co-op program allows you to alternate in-school learning with 12 to 16 months of full-time paid work experience.
