Welcome to the Department of English

The study of English literature is an exploration of the ways in which we express or create worlds through language. By examining works of literature published in English, students in English programs at the University of Saskatchewan not only imagine other worlds and forms of human experience, but also learn how to become better readers, writers, editors, researchers, and critical thinkers.

Located in the Arts Building, the English Department provides undergraduate and graduate education in literatures from a variety of historical time periods and geographical areas; included are courses on Indigenous and digital literatures and on cultural and film studies. Listings under the Undergraduate and Graduate tabs provide details about our programs and courses. The Department is strongly committed to practicing and fostering research and teaching excellence; see the Research and Department tabs for more information.

Our Department’s vision is to be a place where many peoples come together to engage in mutually respectful relations and dialogues. 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.
