Our undergraduate English programs include traditional and cutting-edge components designed to ensure that our students leave Carleton with solid grounding in a range of literary periods, genres, and national/global traditions.
All of our courses promote critical reading and thinking, and four core courses are also designated “writing attentive” to deliver consistent, sequenced training in academic research and writing.
The Department also offers four more specialized degree options:
- a B.A. Honours English with Concentration in Creative Writing
- a Co-op option
- a Specialization in Global Literatures within the Bachelor of Global and International Studies (B.G.In.S.) Honours
- and a Stream in Global Literatures within the General Bachelor of Global and International Studies (B.G.In.S.) General
