About

The English and Film Studies graduate program at the University of Alberta in the Department of English and Film Studies is large and diverse, with internationally recognized strengths in many fields including Canadian literature, Cultural Studies, English literature, American Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Postcolonial Studies, and Modernism.

Overview

The English and Film Studies graduate program at the University of Alberta has excellent internal funding packages and a very high success rate for external funding. We are often able to offer incoming students a funding package approaching, and occasionally, exceeding $30,000 for PhD and $20,000 for MA students annually. We have very high success rates for SSHRC and other major scholarships: currently about half of our PhD students hold a major external award, including a Trudeau scholarship and two Vanier scholarships. 

Learning outcomes

We support student travel for research and conferences, and we have innovative program structures that allow students to pursue exciting and original research. We have an active and very supportive Graduate Students of English Collective, and a department culture that values graduate student participation.
