Memorial University’s Department of English Language and Literature is committed to comprehensive coverage of British, North American, and world literatures. While the Department offers graduate supervision in a variety of areas, most of our recent graduate students have been involved in twentieth-century and contemporary literature and in Canadian literature, including the literature of Newfoundland and Labrador. Irish studies have been targeted by the Department as an area of continuing interest and future growth. The Department welcomes research in northern and North Atlantic studies which links our interests in Canada, Ireland, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Graduate applicants interested in research-based programs are strongly encouraged to find a faculty supervisor at the time of application. Visit the Department of English Language and Literature website for a list of faculty members, their research interests, and contact information. You may also use the Yaffle search engine to find a supervisor you may wish to work with.
