Department of English

The discipline of English at UTSC explores the rich variety of texts produced in the English-speaking world across historical periods and geographical boundaries. Encompassing creative writing, film studies, and literature, our curriculum encourages students to think and write critically about the development of particular genres, the relationship between literary works and other art forms, and the production and dissemination of texts in different historical and cultural contexts. The English program at UTSC gives students the tools to engage with new ways of thinking, speaking, and writing about the world around them and, in so doing, to interact with and to change that world through critical language and argument.
