English

A classic is a book
that has never finished saying what it has to say.

English

Literature brings the world to life in creative ways, animating our engagement with diverse identities, cultures and time periods. Engaging with stories, poems, graphic novels, films, blogs and digital content makes it possible to develop new perspectives on the complex relationships between art and life. Ryerson students develop skills in analysis, researching and writing, all of which are highly valued by employers in many fields - from law to marketing to journalism. Transforming their broad understanding of literature and culture, Ryerson graduates find rewarding career opportunities in writing, teaching, business, library, science and the arts.
