Welcome to English at Laurier Brantford!

“Books are humanity in print.” ~ Barbara W. Tuchman, 1912-1989

The study of English is more than words and phrases in old books. The study of literature, drama, poetry and language, gives our students the chance to explore interesting ideas; discover other cultures; develop proficiency at writing and editing; and foster strong comprehension and analytical skills. English at Laurier Brantford offers a comprehensive introduction to all of the major periods, genres, and theoretical issues of literature, as well as contemporary culture.

The program can also be completed in combination with another honours program, which allows students to take complementary programs like Journalism or unique programs like Health Studies or Leadership. With the core classes in Contemporary Studies, students will be exposed to other disciplines and how literature and popular culture play important roles in their everyday life.
