Overview

Bachelor of Arts - English Language and Literature

English Language and Literature at St. Thomas University is about more than reading—it’s about learning, through texts, to read the world and understand the linguistic mechanisms that shape it. 

Courses introduce the vital practices of critical reading, writing about ideas and texts, and collaborative learning through discussion and debate. 

They explore themes like history, culture, theatre, film, technology, and media—old and new—as well as digital literacy

Students are also able to complete a concentration in Creative Writing, which sharpens skills in style and strategy and offers several prizes and publication opportunities.

 What sets STU’s English Language and Literature Program Apart? 

  • An optional concentration in Creative Writing allows students to engage with texts creatively—to produce them and to hear readings by established authors and writers among their peers.
  • Lectures and seminars are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field. 
  • Course offerings range from traditional topics to media—old and new—as well as digital literacy.
  • Students benefit from faculty expertise in film, theatre studies, Canadian literature, American literature, Medieval studies, ecocriticism, Old English, monstrosity and bodies, digital literacy, and more.
