Continuing to Graduate School:
Students who wish to pursue their education beyond an undergraduate degree are urged to check the requirements of the School or Faculty which they plan to attend. Programs in fields allied to English Language & Literature studies, such as Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Linguistics, Sociology, Anthropology, Philosophy, Journalism, Psychology, Drama, Cinema Studies, Political Science, etc.
It is recommended that students planning to do graduate study in English enrol in the Specialist Program in English. The undergraduate requirements for the Specialist Program in English have been established to provide a broad historic and generic understanding of literature. Meeting the requirements of the Specialist Program at the University of Toronto should be sufficient for most universities. Although no specific course is a requirement for graduate school, it should be stressed that graduate programs, including those at the University of Toronto, normally seek students who have a good knowledge of the major literary forms and periods of English literature from Chaucer to the Twentieth Century. Courses such as ENG300Y Chaucer; ENG302Y Poetry and Prose, 1500-1600; ENG304Y Poetry and Prose, 1600-1660; ENG306Y Poetry and Prose, 1660-1800; ENG308Y Romantic Poetry and Prose are good ways of establishing this knowledge. Another possibility is to plan your course-work, for instance, so that a fiction course, such as ENG324Y Fiction, 1832-1900, is balanced with a poetry course, such as ENG348Y Modern Poetry to 1960, or a drama course, such as ENG340H Modern Drama to WWII and ENG341H Modern Drama since WWII. Some knowledge of contemporary criticism and theory would be useful. A meeting is usually scheduled in September to provide information and advice to students planning to go on to graduate schools. Students seeking detailed information about graduate English Programs offered at the University of Toronto should contact the Department of English Graduate Office at 416-978-5027.
