Alumni of the Department of English can be found across Canada and around the globe in fields such as politics, teaching, the creative arts, law, academia, the non-profit sector, and myriad other professions. Our diverse network of Alumni retains their connection to the department in a variety of ways—from attending the Departmental Speakers’ Series to participating in annual Homecoming events to supporting the Department’s various funding initiatives.

Among the annual events of special interest to Alumni are:

  • "Re/Connect," our Homecoming reception where students past and present have an opportunity to reminisce with professors and forge new bonds; and
  • “Ask the Alumni,” a panel discussion featuring graduates of the program from a variety of sectors, who share stories about how their degree in English has enhanced their career path.

Another great way to connect and keep up with Department of English news and events is through our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.
