The New English Program

After much student consultation, faculty input, and committee revisions, the SFU Department of English revised and updated its courses. We underwent this process to streamline our programs, and revivify our academic offerings. We unveiled our new curriculum in fall 2021.

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.
