About Program

English Language and Literature program combines a survey of the subject, from the medieval period to the present day - Shakespeare and Milton, Austen and the Brontës - with a range of innovative approaches to specific topics. The objectives of the program are;

 

• Acquire in-depth knowledge of English and American Literature from selected sources, develop critical abilities, see how literature depicts human nature, relationships, social and political developments and the world around us.

 

• Introduce students to a wide range of literary texts and to make them enthusiastic and responsive readers, to enable and to equip students to analyse and argue persuasively, to become independent and self-motivated scholars and to equip students with the skills required for further research or for those professions (including teaching, the public sector, the media and business) which require critical and analytical skills, powers of communication and an awareness of the broad meanings of culture.

 

• Be able to work in different contexts: individually, within seminars and as members of small groups with collective responsibility for producing oral or written analysis.

 

Our department promotes a research-intensive environment to promote humanistic inquiry and exchange by supporting innovative scholarly projects and by creating opportunities for interaction among scholars, students and lifelong learners. We aim to ensure that students acquire the analytical skills, historical depth, and appreciation of diverse cultures needed to assume leadership roles as responsible, ethical, and path-breaking scholars, cultural workers, creative artists, policy makers and professional communicators. We prepare our students to be thoughtful and engaged citizens in a global world.
