Why Study English?

There are many reasons to study English at Douglas College:

  • To improve your reading, writing, and critical thinking skills
  • To explore the many worlds imagined by literature
  • To fulfill Douglas College program requirements
  • To obtain the credits required to transfer to university 
  • To complete an Associate of Arts with a specialization in English

Associate of Arts with a Specialization in English

Providing students with the first 60 credits of an undergraduate degree, the Associate of Arts degree with a specialization in English allows for block transfer into third year at a variety of institutions. In addition to offering the English Associates of Arts degree, the department also supports dual admission with SFU and participates in a three-year degree completion program with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in the United Kingdom.
