Program Overview

English at Crandall
Great works of imaginative literature, old and new, are at the heart of Crandall’s English program. We study novels, poems, and plays because of their power to move us and help us draw closer to goodness, truth, and beauty. As students experience and explore this richness, they develop the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills they will need in their professional careers.

English students can choose from a wide range of exciting courses, including specialized courses on classic authors such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Austen, and Eliot, as well as survey courses in Canadian literature, American Literature, and contemporary literary criticism. Crandall’s English program also offers unique upper-level courses that explore the ways in which a Christian worldview informs and enriches the work of best-selling authors such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.

The Benefits of a B.A. in English from Crandall
Crandall’s B.A. in English is excellent preparation for careers that require expert levels of reading, writing, and research, as well as for those that require strong analytical and communication skills.
Recent graduates from Crandall’s B.A. in English have continued their studies at some of Canada’s best known graduate schools and have pursued careers in administration, education, Christian ministries, creative writing, journalism, law, public relations, and public service.
