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. 

Courses in the 200 series provide historically, geographically, generically, or theoretically grounded introductions to the study of English literature. These include the four "gateway" courses required of all Specialists and Majors--introductions to the major national-historical fields (British, Canadian, and American) that comprise literatures  in English--as well as a wide range of courses that will prepare students for further study. Coursework at the 200 level may requires some research and the beginnings of familiarity with scholarship on the subject. English 200-level courses are open to students who have obtained standing in 1.0 ENG FCE, or ANY 4.0 University-level FCE, or who are concurrently taking one of ENG110Y, ENG140Y1, ENG150Y.

 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. Most English 300-series are open to students who have obtained standing in at least 9.0 FCE, including 2.0 ENG FCE.
 
Courses in the 400 series are both advanced and focused, unique courses created by Department faculty that often relate to their own research. Active student participation, including oral presentations, is an important part of these courses. Courses at the 400 level require a substantial research essay for which the student has significant input into framing the research question. Please note, beginning in the summer of 2019, English 400-series courses are open to students who have obtained standing in at least 9.0 FCE, including 4.0 ENG FCE, and who have completed ENG202H1, ENG203H1, ENG250H1, and ENG252H1.


Students should note that changes to scheduling, staffing, reading lists, and methods of evaluation may occur anytime. When possible, changes to the course schedule will appear on ACORN. 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.

1. For updated information regarding ROOM ASSIGNMENTS and COURSE CHANGES (NOT ALL OF WHICH ARE ON ACORN), 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 ACORN. 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. ACORN, 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. Enrollment in all English courses is limited by Department policy. First-year students may enroll 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 enrollment is given to fourth-year 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 enroll in only 1.0 400-series ENG FCE and fourth-year Majors are allowed to register in only 0.5 400-level ENG FCE. During the second round of enrollment the priority is lifted and the course is open to all students who meet the prerequisites.
