Department of English

University of Toronto

2017 Summer Timetable

English courses are arranged in four series, each of which indicates the nature and level of work expected:

100 Series:
The courses in our 100 series introduce students to the study of English literature at the university level through broad courses that introduce the major literary forms via examples drawn from different times and places. These courses aim to develop writing, reading, and critical skills: essays at the 100 level typically do not require research or secondary sources.

200 Series:
Courses in the 200 series introduce specific aspects of the discipline: literature in a specific genre, or literature from a specific place or people. Coursework at the 200 level may require some research and the beginnings of familiarity with scholarship on the subject. 

300 Series:
At the 300 level, courses advance into a particular period or subject within a literature or literary genre: contemporary American fiction, for instance, or a particular topic in Shakespeare studies. Courses at this level introduce students to research skills and typically require essays that incorporate some secondary sources.

400 Series:
Courses in the 400 series are both advanced and focused, unique courses created by Department faculty that often relate to their own research. Courses at the 400 level require a substantial research essay for which the student has significant input into framing the research question.

Notes on the Timetable, Enrolment Regulations and Procedures 

1. For updated information regarding ROOM ASSIGNMENTS and COURSE CHANGES (NOT ALL OF WHICH ARE ON ROSI), please see the Faculty of Arts and Science Timetable. For updated course descriptions, please see our Undergraduate Timetable above, and follow the SECTION links when available.

Changes to Reading Lists and Instructors - Students should note that changes to scheduling, staffing, reading lists, and methods of evaluation may occur anytime thereafter. When possible, changes to the course schedule will appear on ROSI. Students should avoid purchasing texts until the reading list is confirmed by the instructor during the first week of classes. Students wishing to read listed texts in advance are advised to use copies available at both the University and public libraries.

2. ROSI, the University's student information system consists of a string of 8 characters (for instance, ENG110Y1). The last two characters indicate the weight of the course (“Y” = full credit; “H” = half credit) and the campus: 1 = St. George, 3 = UTSC, 5 = UTM. A separate “Section Code” indicates the session in which the course is being given. The English Department timetable for St. George campus consists of 9 characters, the last of which indicates whether the course is being given in the First session (“F”), Second session (“S”), or in both (“Y”).

3. Enrolment in all English courses is limited by Department policy. First-year students may enrol in any 200-series course if they are concurrently enrolled in ENG 110Y, 140Y or 150Y. In some 200-series courses and all 300-series courses, priority is given to students enrolled in an English program. In 400-series courses, priority during the first round of enrolment is given to students who require a 400-series course to satisfy program requirements. To ensure maximum availability of 400-series courses, fourth-year Specialists are allowed to enrol in only 1.0 400-series ENG FCE and fourth-year Majors who require a 400-level ENG course to complete their 2010 (or later) program are allowed to register in only 0.5 400-level ENG FCE. During the second round of enrolment the priority is lifted and the course is open to all students who meet the prerequisites.
