Literature captures us and urges us to reflect on our relationship to the world, to our culture and to ourselves. In stories, poems and plays; in film, graphic novels and even video games, we represent who we are through imagination and language.

We offer a wide range of both traditional and innovative courses that tackle literature from a variety of perspectives. Let us feed your imagination and challenge your intellect.

Undergraduates can choose from an honours, major or general/minor degree. We also offer a master's degree and PhD program.
