Our undergraduate and graduate programs have diverse strengths in Colonial, Postcolonial, and Diasporic Studies; Canadian Literature, Early Modern Studies; Media, Technology and Literacy in the Humanities; Studies in Performance and Politics; Sexuality and Gender Studies; Transnational Nineteenth-Century Studies’; and topics involving Environmental and Social Justice.
While enrolled, students can pursue a wide range of literature, theatre, and media from different historical periods and geographical locations by attending a combination specially designed lectures and seminars. While attending these classes, students will have the opportunity to join a developing conversation involving the relevant cultural debates of today’s growing and changing world.
After completing the program, graduates often go on to pursue careers in teaching, advertising, journalism, publishing, law, the arts, public relations, and other similar enterprises that require a developed communicatory and creative skillset. 

Think critically, read widely, and pursue your future!
