It offers courses in English literature, linguistics and composition. Over the years various members of the Department's staff have been prominent within the University community, as well as nationally and internationally, including Earle Birney, Roy Daniells, Jane Rule, Garnett G. Sedgewick, Frederic Wood, and George Woodcock.
