English at the Brantford Campus

Studying English gives you the chance to explore interesting ideas, discover another culture, and develop communication and comprehension skills. Examine the stories that have made an impact on the world we live in.

Laurier Brantford’s English program offers students a fresh learning experience while providing a background in more traditional areas. Study literature, drama, poetry and language while also examining popular culture, mass media and film studies. Students will develop critical thinking skills, effective writing and editing skills, and strong analytical and comprehension skills.

Discussion and debate are at the heart of any English class, and small class sizes promote interaction between professor and student. This unique approach creates a much more comfortable environment, where students are free to share their ideas.

Students will find English to be a strong complement to contemporary studies or journalism for a career in writing and communications, and the Children’s Education & Development or Youth and Children’s Studies Option for a career in teaching.

You can also study English at Laurier's Waterloo campus.

Program features 

  • Many students choose this honours program, a widely praised Language and Literature program for students interested in studying English literature in a comprehensive way. Students study literature (mostly British, but also Canadian and American), primarily by period, from Anglo-Saxon (Old English) times to the present day.
  • The program is well known for its thoroughness, and we believe that the high standard of teaching, small class sizes in senior years, and friendly atmosphere make it among the very best in Canada.
