Mastery of the English language is a powerful political and philosophical tool to expand career options in the information age. Become an expert communicator in such occupations as speechwriter, editor, and media producer.

English involves the close study and analysis of complex texts. The program provides a historical overview of English literature, as well as an introduction to contemporary literature in Canada and around the world. You will gain an appreciation for the study of language and how it is one of the most powerful political and philosophical tools in an information age. English professors engage students in research projects, labs, and centres that range from Indigenous studies and the study of animal ethics to digitized cultural history.

Courses range in focus from composition to Renaissance literature; from 17th, 18th, and 19th century studies to contemporary American and Canadian writing; and from Indigenous and postcolonial literatures to studies in the emerging field of digital humanities. You can complete a Bachelor of Arts in English with a major, combined major, honours, or a general studies BA with a concentration in English.

Experiential learning and research

The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies (FCCS) hosts numerous events and happenings in the Okanagan community, including theatre, visiting authors, and the Alter Knowledge discussion series. You can also meet your peers, get involved with student life, and explore career options in the UBCO Critical Studies Club. Joining The Phoenix, the Okanagan campus’s student newspaper, is another worthwhile opportunity to meet fellow writers and hone your real-world English skills.

The English program coursework contains many opportunities for undergraduate research, including a directed studies course, where you will undertake supervised research in a clearly-defined area, leading to a major research paper. The FCCS offers $2,500 undergraduate research awards that provide undergraduate students support to engage in research and creative activities over the summer months.
