Bachelor of Arts in English



¿Qué aprenderé?

Carleton’s English program ranges from some of the most famous names in English writing to lesser-known authors, taking into account regional, national and global perspectives. You will have a chance to discuss the pressing issues and enduring ideas behind literature, as well as examine the ways in which books spring from cultural contexts and fit into the arc of literary history. You will explore how British and Canadian literary traditions have evolved and how alternative, underground and non-Western voices trouble and enrich those traditions. You may take workshops in creative writing and drama, either as electives or in the context of the department’s concentrations in Creative Writing and Drama Studies. We also offer a minor in Digital Humanities as well a minor in Drama Studies.

Overall, the program is designed to develop students’ abilities to analyze texts accurately, contextually and critically, to write clearly and persuasively in a variety of genres, and to conduct independent research skills that are key to your future endeavors in the world beyond university.

The Carleton Advantage

You will cultivate a passion for reading, the craft of writing, and the art of thinking while gaining valuable work experience for a changing world.

You will be prepared for living in a complex world by studying the texts that anchor our diverse histories, from Beowulf to Bollywood, Jane Austen to comic books, Shakespeare to Indigenous drama.

Ottawa is home to a vibrant literary community that hosts many events, from prestigious national galas to coffeehouse writer circles. You will attend regular Ottawa International Writers Festival events for free.

The program enables students to combine academic study with valuable paid work experience through a highly successful Co-operative Education program. Many students find employment with the federal government and in Ottawa’s high-tech sector.

You will enjoy access to prominent national institutions, including Library and Archives Canada, the National Gallery, and the National Arts Centre.
