Program Overview

The study of English is about the appreciation of language at work.  English students explore the impact and possibilities of words as they form into narratives and speak through characters to wider cultural communities at home and across the globe. 

English offers creative inspiration and critical thinking skills while empowering students to become highly literate in a society that values communication.

We will help develop your analytical and communication skills; studying literature will refine your reading, writing, and critical thinking skills, as well as cultivate your love of literature.  Through in-class discussions and seminar presentations, you’ll build strategies for public speaking. 

As an effective communicator, you’ll excel in any professional environment and bring a wealth of verbal, analytical, and written strengths to every team dynamic.

At UNB, we encourage thinking and doing. If you’re looking for a creative outlet, try our Creative Minor in one of these three areas: film/video, creative writing, and theatre.

Hands-on learning

  • Internship: use your knowledge to shape the community by applying for an unpaid, for-credit internship. You’ll work directly with local organizations and non-profits, including the Charlotte Street Arts Centre and the New Brunswick Film Co-op.

  • Study English literature abroad through UNB’s Exchange program
  • Attend small seminar courses where you can passionately engage with unique and focused topics in literature that excite you
