About

The tradition at the English MA program at York University has always been to challenge the idea of tradition itself, to seek out the limits of established ideas, and to attend to new ones.  We are proud of our reputation for adventurous, interdisciplinary, and innovative approaches to literature.  

Overview

Trail-blazing into the new, creating valuable knowledge, and assessing significance in every field of literary history, criticism and theory requires truly comprehensive knowledge, skillful research, and thought-provoking writing.  The English MA program at York University is carefully and supportively designed to help students develop into the next generation of important scholars.

Our faculty and courses represent a compelling range of theoretical, historical and critical approaches to literature across the historical sweep of English-language literatures in all genres from their very beginnings to today’s global spectrum of voices and expressive forms.  Study with prize-winning graduate faculty in American, British, Canadian, Postcolonial, Diasporic, and World Literatures. Study in depth the periods of Medieval and Renaissance, 18th-century and Romantics, Victorianism and Modernism, the 20th-century and the truly contemporary with an array of disciplinary theories that will energize and change how you read and think.

Career Opportunities

Today, our doctoral graduates are professors at UBC, Simon Fraser, U Alberta, Queen's, McGill, UNB, and elsewhere across North America.  Master's and doctoral graduates have translated their degrees into dynamic careers in the arts, government, NGOs, online and print journalism, publishing, project management, and a host of entrepreneurial businesses related to arts, education, and community development.
