Welcome to the Department of English. We offer a wide range of courses and a number of different degree programs in English, Creative Writing, Young People's Texts and Cultures, and Screen 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.
