BS English


The Department of English is a beautiful amalgamation of subjects that fall under English literature and linguistics. The learners are familiarized with eras of English literature and their prototype literature; prominent themes, writers, and characters, of both poetry and prose. Keeping in view the significance that linguistics has attained in the past two decades, the learners are trained to analyze various text genres, comprehend contemporary grammars, speech processes, methods and approaches of English language teaching, as well as achieve a grasp on computational tools required to handle large scale data for more informed and reliable researches.

Role and Scope

Language policies have taken various shifts in the past few years, pertaining to the fact that traditional methods of English language teaching are not endorsed even on school levels. There inhibit several technicalities when it comes to setting syllabi for specific groups of learners, which cannot be achieved without formal education and training. Our graduates are equipped not only with an understanding of the foundations of literature and linguistics, but are also trained to be professionals in the fields of English language teaching, syllabus design, speech pathology, computational linguistics, forensic linguistics, journal editing, publishing, research, and language policy making.
