B.A. in English and Intercultural Studies

Baccalauréat en études anglaises et interculturelles
Présentation en français

Carving out a future in languages and culture

This program enables students to develop specialized English-language skills while broadening their culture. Areas of study include literature in English, languages, cultures, digital humanities, translation, writing and communication, in a bilingual environment. A good command of English is a prerequisite, given that this is the language of instruction for most of the courses in the program.

Students are led to explore the role of English across the world from a global perspective and in relation to other languages, and French in particular. Over the course of this intercultural program, students examine how the concepts of ethnicity, nation, identity and cultural borrowing shape language usage as well as literary expression. The B.A. is very much in keeping with the tradition of cultural studies.
