Powerful truths about labour, gender issues and religion in the nineteenth-century jump off the page as you read a narrative so gripping that you cannot put it down. Your empathy is engaged. Fascinated by the work of a famous playwright, you wrestle with how a topic such as shame can be met with such enlivening wit. You ask big questions. What is truth? What is goodness? What is beauty? As you immerse yourself in the study of literature your worldview is broadened.

Tyndale’s Bachelor of Arts in English stimulates your curiosity and challenges you to think critically as you study a broad range of genres, from Canadian poetry to African American fiction, and authors from John Milton to Jane Austen. You learn how to make connections between classical literature and faith-based concepts. Professors teach you how to write persuasively, frame a compelling narrative, and analyze levels of meaning in texts. You even build your portfolio with opportunities to edit books and publish or perform your own work.
