Think more clearly, communicate more effectively, and better understand the images and ideas that shape our culture.
As a student at Laurier’s Brantford campus, you can earn the Laurier degree in English while enjoying the advantages of a smaller, more intimate campus and urban environment. Laurier English offers you a comprehensive overview of the history, forms and concerns of literature written in the English-speaking world. You’ll be trained in techniques of literary criticism that will cultivate your analytical abilities, and you’ll hone writing techniques that will make you an exceptional communicator.
In your classes you’ll read some of the richest and most interesting works ever written. By thinking about the ideas and communication patterns in these works, you’ll gain a better appreciation for how ideas circulate in our own culture – ideas about how people should live, how people and the environment coexist, how people of different races, genders and classes relate to each other, and more.
A degree in English gives you the flexibility to seize opportunities in several different career environments: it is the perfect degree for thriving in changing times. And only at Laurier’s Brantford campus can you enhance your job skills by pairing your English degree with a minor in professional writing.
