Associate of Arts Degree in English

The main aim of a degree in English is to provide students with a broad but detailed understanding of the history of English literature and the literatures of Canada, the United States, and other English-speaking countries. 

Students examine literature in its social, historical, and cultural contexts, and relate the literary works they read not only to the historical periods in which they were produced, but also to the world in which we live today. 

In addition to studying the traditional genres of poetry, fiction, drama, and representative writing from the Middles Ages to the present day, English students at KPU have the opportunity to study a wide range of innovative subjects, including classic and contemporary film, world literature, aboriginal and diasporic literature, and literature in translation.

Concentration in English at the Associate level is an excellent foundation for a variety of careers and further studies. 

Those who wish to pursue a B.A. Major or Minor in English are encouraged to take a variety of English courses within an Associate of Arts degree.
