BA (Hons) English
This program equips students to be active readers who express their appreciation for ambiguity and interpret multiple perspectives; able to write for a variety of professional and social settings while revising for grammatical and stylistic clarity; appraise the diversity of literary and social voices within – and sometimes marginalized by – major traditions of literature; read works of literary, rhetorical, and cultural criticism, and apply ideas from these texts in their own reading and writing.
The program instills research skills that allow students to identify topics, formulate questions for productive inquiry, use appropriate methods and sources for research, evaluate critically the sources they find, and employ their chosen sources effectively in their own writing.
