When you study English or Creative Writing at UFV, you build the sought-after skills that are highly prized by employers everywhere. A Bachelor of Arts in English or Creative Writing can lead to careers in a variety of industries from marketing and business to journalism, research, and publishing. Learn where an English degree can take you and read success stories from successful UFV English graduates.

When studying English at UFV, you explore the rich tradition of English literature throughout history and sharpen your communication and critical thinking skills.

UFV offers four English major options within its Bachelor of Arts: in addition to the traditional English major in English Literature, the major is available with a concentration in Creative Writing, Drama, or Writing and Rhetoric. UFV also offers honours programs in both English and Creative Writing, and a minor and extended minor in Creative Writing and English.

As a student of UFV, you are invited to attend readings and lectures sponsored by the English department, consult with the visiting writer in residence, and write for the campus newspaper (The Cascade) or for the departmental literary journal (Louden Singletree).

UFV English graduates are able to understand, interpret, and respond effectively to a rapidly changing world and acquire communication, interpretive, and critical thinking skills, as well as cultural awareness. The study of critical writing teaches you how to organize your knowledge, express your thoughts and beliefs, and ask meaningful questions, equipping you for success both in work and life.

English major

There are four concentrations on which to focus your English major: Literature, Creative Writing, Drama, and Writing and Rhetoric.

Literature courses provide grounding in major authors, genres, and periods as well as a broad understanding of socio-cultural processes that shape Indigenous, national, and transnational literatures.

Creative writing courses integrate literary study with writing workshops in which you discuss your work with your peers and instructors. Learn various creative processes and techniques for poetry, playwriting, and fiction.

Drama courses enhance your understanding of how language functions in theatre. You explore a range of dramatic genres, consider how dramatic texts document and archive past performance practices, and contextualize the significance of theatre in historical and social movements.

Writing and rhetoric courses teach you how writing and language are used as tools by examining issues of meaning and usage of the English language. Learn how language serves as a call to action and how language acts — in itself, on the user, and on the community.

In your first and second year, you study and critique a variety of literature from the cultures and time periods that interest you. You can choose to delve into the challenging craft of creative writing, explore the evolution of theatre and drama throughout history, or analyze the structure and usage of the English language.

In your third and fourth year, you sharpen your critical analysis, writing, and research skills. You are able to establish richer relationships with your professors and peers as you participate in classroom discussions and analyze each other's writing.

By the end of the program, you have developed an appreciation and in-depth understanding of the major genres, periods, movements, and authors throughout literary history. You have gained the transferrable skills — such as critical inquiry, evidence evaluation, and the ability to explore different perspectives and develop arguments — that make you qualified and confident to establish yourself in a variety of fields.
