Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in History and English Language and Literature 

The History and English Language and Literature combined program provides students with training in both history and English.

Program Description
Through history, students will study the great stories of the past. Students will be able to research and interpret history to better understand, and be prepared for, present-day events. This will allow students to appreciate, understand, internalize, and apply various historical and cultural perspectives to real-world situations. Students can choose from a diverse array of courses from North American, European, Latin American, Middle Eastern and African history, as well as women’s history, Aboriginal history, African-American/Canadian, Atlantic World, the Renaissance, military history, and popular culture, among others.
When combined with English literature, you will encounter the immense range of human experience as expressed across many historic periods and cultures, from Anglo-Saxon oral tradition through to contemporary writing in English from around the world. Students will be able to understand the ways in which language and literature inform and reflect various cultures, social bodies, and historical periods.
