Great works of imaginative literature, old and new, are at the heart of Crandall’s English program.
We study novels, poems, and plays because of their power to move us and help us draw closer to goodness, truth, and beauty.
As students experience and explore this richness, they develop the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills they will need in their professional careers.
English students can choose from a wide range of exciting courses, including specialized courses on classic authors such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Austen, and Eliot and survey courses in Canadian literature, American Literature, and contemporary literary criticism.
Crandall’s English program also offers unique upper-level courses that explore how a Christian worldview informs and enriches the work of best-selling authors such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
Crandall’s B.A. in English is excellent preparation for careers that require expert levels of reading, writing, and research and those who need strong analytical and communication skills.
Recent graduates from Crandall’s B.A. in English have continued their studies at Canada’s best-known graduate schools.
They have pursued careers in administration, education, Christian ministries, creative writing, journalism, law, public relations, and public service.
Professors in the program are passionate about literature and the success of their students.
They get to know their students personally and work with them both in class and individually to encourage excellence and facilitate success.
Program courses cover works from a wide range of historical periods and genres, including literature from Britain, Canada, the United States, and other countries contributing to the English literary canon.
Introductory courses train students in the knowledge and skills needed to complete a degree in English.
In contrast, upper-level courses allow students to specialize in the literature of some of their favourite periods, authors, and themes.
The Creative Writing option within the degree encourages students to explore their creativity as they study the art of writing fiction, poetry, and drama and then practice writing works of their own.
The Oxford Study Programme offers students the opportunity to spend one semester in England, studying Shakespeare and drama as Associate Students at Regent’s Park College of the University of Oxford.
The university’s TESL Certificate Program, popular among English majors, offers students the chance to become certified teachers of English as a Second Language and assists in finding teaching jobs overseas.
The English Society creates opportunities for students to meet other students with similar interests.
