Welcome to the Department of English at the University of Winnipeg, located in Treaty 1 territory. We offer a wide range of courses and a number of different undergraduate degree programs that offer students the opportunity to specialize in English Literature, Creative Writing, Young People's Texts and Cultures, and Screen Studies, and an M.A. in Cultural Studies. Our faculty is composed of highly qualified professors who are committed to their students, to diverse research interests, and to the importance of literature, language, and culture as forms of knowledge. The English Department is an active, continually evolving place. We house the student-run literary journal Juice and the Carol Shields Writer-in-Residence Program. We are also affiliated with the Centre for Research into Young People's Texts and Cultures (CRYTC) and the scholarly journal Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures.
