Welcome to the English Department at UPEI. Whether you’ve got a serious literary crush, or whether you just read for fun, you’ve come to the right place. We offer an Honours degree – of most interest to those of you who plan to pursue post-graduate work in our discipline, or who really, really love a particular aspect of English Literature. We offer a Major in English – attractive to those of you who want to leave yourselves open for a wide variety of career possibilities. And we offer a Minor in English – great for those of you in other fields or faculties who want to keep a place for literature in your studies. We also welcome those of you who want to sample a course here and there, staying in touch with familiar writers and discovering new ones.
If you’d like to know more about what we do and what we offer, drop by the department and chat to any one of us: we’re often in our offices, and our doors are usually open. You can also find out more by consulting the English program page using the link on the right side of this page, and by reading the Department’s Calendar Supplement, which is available in our Current Students section, and updated annually.
