All students in an Honours English & Cultural Studies program need to complete Level IV seminars as part of their program requirements. Since these courses are limited in size, enrollment is available by departmental permission only.
The Centre for Community-Engaged Narrative Arts (CCENA, co-directed by Daniel Coleman and Lorraine York) will hold its first gathering on March 1, 2016. CCENA understands society to be formed of various interpretive communities, whose outlooks and objectives are formed by the narratives through which they imagine themselves, their relationships, and their purposes.
Welcome to the Department of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University. We have a tradition of outstanding scholarship and teaching in the field of English, and our graduate and undergraduate programs have strong reputations.
We combine long-standing commitments to the exploration of British, American, and Canadian literature of all periods with expertise in Postcolonial literature and cultures and in approaches to literary study that emphasize transnational connections. We were among the first English Departments in Canada to develop courses and programs in Cultural Studies and Critical Theory, and we strongly believe that these offerings foster a unique and valuable set of critical, analytical, and communications skills in our students.
Dr. Peter Walmsley
Chair, The Department of English & Cultural Studies
