Canadian Literature in English - Minor

Minor or Concentration
A minor or other concentration, such as an option or specialization, is a secondary set of courses that can be completed as you earn a degree in your major area of study.

So you want to learn about Canadian literature, eh? The minor in Canadian Literature in English allows students to learn about all facets of our national literatures published in the English language. Our foundational course, ENG 253.6, provides an introduction to Canadian fiction, poetry, drama, life-writing, and oral narratives. Our rich selection of additional courses allows students to investigate more extensively particular areas of interest, including Indigenous literatures in Canada, Western Canadian literature, and Canadian speculative fiction.

The Canadian Literature minor provides excellent background preparation for those who intend to pursue a teaching career in high schools or at the college level. It is also an enriching adjunct for those interested in other areas of Canadian studies, including Canadian literature in French, Canadian drama, art, history, native studies, and political studies. And it is ideal for those who simply have a keen interest in the Canadian literary imagination.

The Canadian Literature minor is offered by the Department of English.
