Welcome and Introduction

Welcome to the English program guides page, a research guide developed to direct members of the Western English community. This page will continue to evolve.

Citing Sources

Although there is no standard citation style for language and literature, MLA (Modern Language Association) style is often used in undergraduate English courses here at Western. Students who require in-depth assistance with citing their sources are advised to consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers.
