Choose a major in our department and you’ll be taught by internationally renowned critics, creative writers, theatre specialists, and scholars. Our degrees help you to develop exceptional skills as a writer, performer, researcher, critical thinker and communicator - opening up a wide range of careers. Many English and Drama graduates end up as lawyers, professional writers, actors, and teachers, but they also become fashion entrepreneurs, investment advisors, lab technicians, and even... Prime Minister (Justin Trudeau? He’s a BA in Literature). Our students are especially well-positioned for admission to advanced degrees in the Humanities, Law, Medicine, and Business, and by combining a major in a Science or Social Science with one in English or Drama you’ll give yourself an edge in any field.
