English Department

Welcome to English at X!

Our department offers a stimulating and friendly learning environment, with small classes taught by outstanding experts.

We have a strong national reputation for undergraduate teaching—your degree from us is second to none. You can tailor your degree from a variety of patterns available to you:


  • Major Program
  • Advanced Major Program
  • Honours Program
  • Honours with a Subsidiary
  • Minor Program

We are more than happy to work with you on putting together the program you want.

Our faculty are devoted to helping you develop your analytical skills, your writing skills, and a love of reading—especially close reading. We work closely with the Bauer Theatre, where you can help bring a drama to life either by acting or by being a stagehand, or in some other capacity. We also offer undergraduate research assistant opportunities for outstanding students in their senior years. These opportunities include editing and researching.

I hope that this site will answer some of your questions about studying English at X. But please get in touch with me to chat about the learning opportunities our department will give you. You can reach me by phone, email, or Microsoft Teams:

Dr. Joseph Khoury, Professor and Chair
