English is a vibrant and warm home to a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Students can choose from undergraduate programs that offer foundation-building approaches to literary traditions in the English language (covering the Medieval and Renaissance, through the Enlightenment, Romantic, Victorian, to the Modern, Postmodern, and contemporary periods) as well as to writing and rhetoric.

Creative writing degree programs at the University of Windsor combine critical and literary coursework. Our workshops are conducted in an intimate, informal seminar format where students learn from and discover each other's writing, and are mentored by creative writing faculty who are writers and actively engaged with the best in their fields.

Along with our department’s complement of hands-on practicum courses in writing, editing, and publishing, our combined programs give students a range of career path options.

English also houses distinguished graduate programs in Literature and Creative Writing at the Master's level.
