Course programme

M.A English

M.A English is designed particularly for those students who wish to pursue English as an all inclusive and multi-disciplinary field of study. The substantive foci of the programme is to familiarize the students with the intellectually stimulating mix of the classical and the modern, the conformist and the reactionary, the central and the peripheral, the inter-disciplinary and the intra-disciplinary , the personal and the political that the field of English studies has become today. The present programme aims at the study of the dynamics of both literature and language so as to give a firmer footing to the students of English. While designing the courses, emphasis has been laid on orienting the students to the study of different genres of literature and exposing them to the wide variety of English literatures which is the current trend in the field. However, the first two semesters includes the courses which introduce to the student concepts, issues, debates and developments in English language and language teaching. An inclusion of these courses increases considerably the already high employability of the English postgraduates.

An important aspect of the syllabus is that considerable care has been taken to keep in mind the requirements of qualifying exams like SLET and NET and other competitive exams in English.

The programme incorporates a dissertation which students will be required to submit in the final semester of the programme. An adequate literary training requires ability to research and write substantial papers. The dissertation, it is expected, will enable students to write their first long and independent thesis under faculty supervision.
