Honours program

Recognized as one of the preeminent Honours programs in Canada, the department's Honours English program provides students with a strong grounding in traditional and emerging fields of literary study, critical analysis, and writing skills, as well as theory and research methodologies.

This program is designed for students who show a strong commitment to an intense study of English literature. At a time when undergraduate class sizes are increasing across the country, English Honours students at UVic have the opportunity to work with individual faculty members and in small groups of students with similar interests.

The structure of the program demands some study of all periods of English literature, from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century, but it also provides room for detailed examination of a particular author or for some specialization in a particular period of literature.
