College of Arts and Science - where great minds meet Home

Welcome to English

The Department of English is one of nine departments in the Division of Humanities & Fine Arts in the College of Arts and Science. Located in the Arts Building, the department has about 30 permanent and 20 limited-term faculty. The Department of English is strongly committed to teaching excellence at both graduate and undergraduate levels. All tenured and tenurable faculty teach first-year courses, with most faculty teaching at least one first-year course annually.

The department provides undergraduate and graduate education in a variety of subject areas, including Medieval, Renaissance, Restoration and Eighteenth Century, Nineteenth Century, Modern and Post-Modern, Aboriginal, Canadian, Decolonizing, and Digital Literatures, as well as Theory, Film, and Cultural and Media Studies.

We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is Treaty Six territory and traditional Metis homeland, and we acknowledge the diverse Indigenous peoples whose footsteps have marked this territory for centuries. Our Department’s vision is to be a place where many peoples come together to engage in mutually respectful relations and dialogues.
