The new English program

Over the last two years, SFU's Department of English has been working hard to revise and update our courses, to streamline our programs, and to revivify our academic offerings. Now, after months of student consultation, faculty input, and committee revisions, we’re thrilled finally to unveil our new curriculum for fall 2021—just in time for our return to in-person teaching.

We’ve heard you, and we’ve used what you’ve said to create a new and more flexible curriculum, one that we know will make our department a more vibrant and more inviting place to study. You can read more specifics about these changes below.

Learn more about the new English program in a message from our Undergraduate Chair, David Coley.
