100-Level Courses
The 100-level courses are designed to increase students’ skills in close reading, interpretation, and effective writing; emphasize the development of analytical and essay-writing skills; and build acquaintance with major literary forms and conventions that students need in more advanced courses.They are open to all students who have standing in no more than one full course in English.

ENG140Y5Y, our current first-year flagship course, explores how literature responds to the modern world and focuses on some of the most significant works of modern and contemporary literature. ENG110Y5 explores the nature of narrative in a wide variety of fictional and non-fictional, poetic and cinematic forms. DRE/ENG121H and DRE/ENG122H study drama and performance from classical times to the present. ENG110Y5 and ENG140Y5 are equivalent to one another in that either one can be used in fulfillment of a Specialist, Major, or Minor Program, as can the combination of ENG121H and ENG122H. ENG100H5, a course in general writing skills relevant to a wide range of university subject areas, may not be used to meet the requirements of any English program.
