THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH

The Department of English at McGill is unique in that its undergraduate program brings together three different but related areas of study: Literature, Drama and Theatre, and Cultural Studies. Undergraduate students follow one of the three options in their program of study and also take courses in the other streams. Moyse Hall Theater operates through the Deparment of English. Graduate students, key participants in all areas of Department life, also have the opportunity to explore aspects of Literature, Cultural Studies, Performance, and Theatre History in their seminar work and research. At any given time, there are approximately 80 graduate students enrolled in the MA and PhD programs.

A number of major, collaborative research projects and research groups, including the McGill Medievalists, the Shakespeare TeamNovelists on the NovelCuizine, the Digital Costume Project, and the Burney Centre, are housed in the deparment as well.
