Welcome to the Department of English
From Beowulf to hypertext fiction, the Department of English at St. Jerome’s University provides a full array of courses and topics. Well-rounded and exemplary, the programs are delivered by professors with expertise not only in all forms of British and contemporary literature and poetry, but in creative writing, cultural studies, social history, religion and culture, community development, theatre, film, radio, and Irish literature. They provide a multi-disciplinary approach and perspective that makes interactions and experiences with them meaningful.
We are unique in our strong, vital link to the arts community. We are home to The New Quarterly, host the Canada Council Reading Series at St. Jerome’s University, and collaborate with the Stratford Festival on courses offered there. Contemporary writers are often guests in our classrooms.
