400-Level Undergraduate Course Timetables and Descriptions

English 400-series courses are open to students who have obtained standing in at least 9.0 FCE, including 4.0 ENG FCE. (Please note that beginning with the 2019-20 FAS Calendar, this prerequisite will include all of ENG202H1, ENG203H1, ENG250H1 and ENG252H1). Students who require a 400-series course to satisfy their program requirements have enrolment priority in the first round of course enrolment. During the second round of enrolment the priority is lifted and the course is open to all students who meet the prerequisites. To ensure maximum availability of 400-series courses, fourth-year Specialists are allowed to enrol in only 1.0 400-series ENG FCE during the priority period and fourth-year Majors are allowed to register in only 0.5 400-level ENG FCE during the priority period. Seminars are designed to provide students with the opportunity to practice their skills of research and interpretation at a particularly advanced level. Please note that prerequisites and limits will be strictly enforced.* For room locations and up to date information, please see the Arts and Science Timetable at

Please note that for our New 2018 Programs, 400-level ENG courses may not be used to fulfill the requirements of any group. 

*Fourth-year students in our pre-2018 programs are not required to take ENG202H1, ENG203H1, ENG250H1, or ENG252H1 as part of the 4.0 ENG FCE and any 9.0 FCE prerequisites.
