Le baccalauréat ès arts avec majeure en anglais offre une formation en littératures de langue anglaise, comparative et canadienne. Il permet à l'étudiant de développer ses capacités d'analyse critique, de synthèse, et de communication orale et écrite. En plus, le contexte francophone de l'Université Sainte-Anne permet à l'étudiant d'acquérir une fondation solide pour les carrières bilingues.

Introduction aux baccalauréats ès arts

Les programmes de Baccalauréat ès Arts permettent à l'étudiant d'acquérir une formation générale grâce à un éventail de cours choisis parmi les langues, les sciences et les sciences humaines. Ils permettent à l'étudiant de choisir les disciplines qui lui conviennent en fonction de ses intérêts et de ses besoins tout en lui permettant d'acquérir une maîtrise solide du français et de l'anglais et de bonnes connaissances des littératures de ces deux langues.Il peut accéder aux études supérieures et ses qualifications lui ouvrent de nombreuses portes sur le marché du travail.

L'Université Sainte-Anne reconnaît les difficultés particulières rencontrées par certains étudiants acadiens et par les étudiants anglophones. L'étudiant doit posséder une certaine compétence de base en français avant d'entreprendre un programme universitaire menant à un diplôme.

Tout étudiant dont la langue maternelle n'est pas le français et dont la compétence dans cette langue est inférieure à celle qui est exigée par l'Université devra acquérir cette compétence dans le programme d'immersion totale soit aux sessions du printemps, d'été ou de cent jours, soit par d'autres moyens avant de s'inscrire dans un programme d'études en vue d'obtenir un diplôme.

Débouchés

Le baccalauréat ès arts avec majeure en anglais, ou avec l'appui d'une majeure ou d'une mineure en français, établit une fondation solide pour les carrières bilingues. Avec une majeure ou mineure en histoire ou bien dans le contexte des études canadiennes, les programmes des études anglaises offrent une formation universitaire privilégiée par les employeurs dans tous les domaines.

Pour les étudiants non-francophones qui souhaitent améliorer leurs compétences en français en même temps qu'ils poursuivent ce programme, nous offrons l'Option immersion française intégrée.

Foire aux questions

Why would I study English at a francophone university?

Ah, but why do so many students study French or German or Japanese at anglophone universities across the country? We put the universal back in university by developing a student’s analysis and communication skills through the study of English-language literature. Practically, a high concentration of English courses on your Université Sainte-Anne transcript is a great indicator of translation ability and/or bilingualism in both of Canada’s official languages. More generally, the study of English literature means an education in critical thinking, careful interpretation, persuasive communication, emotional intelligence and creative problem-solving.

I want to improve my English. Which courses should I take?

Courses designated ANLS are for students learning English as an additional language. Courses designated ANGL present literature and other texts in English for analysis and interpretation (some of these courses also study creative writing, film, and theatre). ANLS graduates can perfect their English in ANGL courses.

Will studying English get me a job?

Yes and no. One major study recently found that Canadian humanities grads have greater job stability in the long run compared with more overtly professional degrees. As with many undergraduate degrees, a major in English does not necessarily prepare students for any one job. Rather, as various analysts attest, we train critical thinkers and strong communicators who are able to pursue careers and further education in fields which require attentive analysis, pattern recognition, extrapolation, interpretation, and communication. English majors can make excellent lawyers, librarians, teachers, and communication professionals (e.g., in journalism, public service, and marketing). Students who study English can also improve their critical-reading habits for science, business, government, and other sectors.

What have your recent grads done?

Our bilingual grads have earned full-time work in IT, become professors and teachers (provincially, nationally, and internationally), gone to law school, and earned places in graduate programs in English, librarianship, and francophone studies.

Your department is so tiny. Won't I get bored?

A glance at our recent course offerings shows that we offer a wide variety of stimulating courses. Popular courses include: Children’s Literature, Shakespeare, Contemporary Fiction, Literature and the Environment, Comedy and Cinema, and Creative Writing: The Short Story. Students appreciate our professors’ close attention to their writing skills in our small classes. We reverse the North-American trend and ensure that the majority of our teaching is done by full-time professors here at Church Point (not by one-course instructors or by video-conference).

I'm already fluent in English. Why would I study more English at university?

The study of English literature is much more than the study of grammar and other language building-blocks. Just as athletes are never finished training, students of communication, analysis, and critical thinking thrive on new challenges to their abilities to think and communicate. University-level English courses are substantially more challenging than high-school English courses and involve the social, cultural, and historical contexts for the classic works that you will read, watch, or act out.

Isn't all this interpretation stuff just subjective anyway?

Ah, but most complex fields and endeavours involve interpretation. Investors and entrepreneurs interpret market forces. Physicians and mechanics interpret symptoms. Citizens and politicians interpret their shared laws. Scientists interpret data. Family and team members interpret behaviour and communication. There are skills to analyzing and interpreting (and writing) in each of these fields that can be taught and developed—that’s what we do, only for literature and theatre and film and creative writing and…

OK, but where do I start?

Take ANGL 1153 or ANGL 1163 right now! ANGL 1153 (offered each fall) and ANGL 1163 (offered each winter) are pre-requisites for our upper-year courses.They’re required by majors, they’re the two pillars of the gateway to our upper-year classes, and they qualify as English credits for most students in other degree-programs.

How do ANGL courses differ from ANLS courses?

ANLS courses teach the English language. ANGL courses further challenge a student’s use and comprehension of English with the analysis of literature, film, and/or theatre written or performed in English (or translated into English).

English isn't my first language. What level of English competence is required for ANGL courses?

The written analysis of literature in English requires advanced English fluency. Here at Université Sainte-Anne, however, we’re part of a global trend that finds more and more non-native English speakers, from near and far, keen to develop their English. Past students who speak English as an additional language have succeeded in our courses. Very early in ANGL 1153 and ANGL 1163, students’ language-level will be assessed, to ensure that they are ready for ANGL courses.
