BA in English Literature

Our B.A. in English programme prepares students to take up careers where English is needed. The courses offered introduce students to a wide range of literary genres, offering a combination of survey courses and intensive ones focusing on special areas or genres. Students are also required to take a number of courses in language and language teaching to prepare them for teaching careers at schools and intermediate colleges where language and literature are not exclusive. Other careers open to B.A. in English graduates would be in the fields of journalism and print media. Graduates may also opt to go on for higher studies for which the intensive courses will have prepared them adequately.
