Don’t be fooled into thinking that if you major in English there won’t be any jobs for you after you graduate. In fact, companies are always on the look out for someone with good writing and speaking skills. English majors pursue a number of careers including stenography, communications, journalism, library science, teaching and technical writing.


Like many of our programs, the English program at Sheridan College is designed to be a transfer program for those who are seeking a Bachelor’s degree or advanced degree in English.

Students study core areas of English literature including contemporary literature and poetry. The program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the English language. Students learn various uses of the language, and some of the methods by which ideas are communicated. The program provides an introduction to literary traditions, creative writing and critical approaches to literature.
