Undergraduate Studies in English and Cultural Studies
Our Level II and III courses foster a broad understanding of major movements and ideas in Cultural Studies and English literary history. Some of these courses offer focused investigations of particular authors, genres, periods, or national literatures-of Shakespeare, for example, or Canadian literature-while others focus on topics ranging from the Age of Elizabeth I to popular culture to Indigenous futurisms to an experiential practicum focused on reading and writing in the community.
At Level IV, our Honours students take seminars-small weekly discussion-based classes that facilitate in-depth study and open dialogue. These seminars allow a small group of students to work closely with a faculty member on a particular topic. A wide selection of seminars is offered every year. Recent topics have included Even Stranger Things: The Early Gothic; Playing, Winning, Losing: Strategies of Power in Renaissance Literature; Bollywood and Beyond; Digital Lives; and Graphic Narrative in Canada.
