Applications are now closed for the fall 2024 intake for the English MA and PhD programs.
With over 25 faculty, working in areas as diverse as medieval studies and poetry, 18th-century media, psychoanalytic theory, rhetoric and discourse analysis, digital humanities, and contemporary Canadian poetics, Simon Fraser University’s Department of English is historically and methodologically varied, as well as critically and pedagogically innovative.

At SFU, graduate studies in English are defined by one-on-one relationships between students and professors, attention and care to developing students’ intellectual and creative aims, and a close-knit community of graduate students.
The Master of Arts program allows students several paths to the degree:
- a course-work option, where the student takes six seminars over the academic year,
- a project option, which combines coursework with an academic, digital, or creative project overseen by two faculty,
- and a print culture certificate, which focuses the MA on book history, print culture, and literary media.
SFU English prides itself on the intimacy and attentiveness we give to our students in courses, supervision, and collaboration. The program is also proud to guarantee full funding to all admitted MA and PhD students.
