UTSC English Department Open House

The UTSC English department will host an open house March 12-14 at the Instructional Centre

March 12 to 14 in the Instructional Centre

The English Department will hold its first three-day Open House, March 12 to 14, to celebrate current specialists and majors, alumni, and faculty and to introduce the Department to interested students from across the Campus as well as the larger community. The event is an opportunity for current and prospective students to learn more about the English Department, its exciting course offerings in literature, film, creative writing, and critical theory, and the rich research agendas of its diverse faculty. It is also an opportunity to discover the many careers open to English specialists, majors and minors, do some crucial networking, and connect with former students.

Above all, the Open House is a chance for the Department's talented and diverse constituencies to enjoy a few hours of constructive discussions and relaxed talk together in the midst of a busy academic year. We sincerely hope you will join us!
