In addition, it is committed to the achievement of academic and linguistic excellence, creativity and all-round development of students. The courses offered in the School reflect these objectives and concerns.

M.Phil. in English

The M.Phil. is a two semester programme which includes course work of 18 credits and a dissertation. The courses relate to each candi­date's area of interest in which the dissertation will be written, and to core areas of study. The programme includes written examinations for the course work. The dissertation is written on a topic approved by the Department and under the supervision of a faculty member. Candidates are expected to give a pre-or post-submission seminar on their research topics. The dissertation is examined by both internal and external examiners.

The Department enrolls students for research both at the M.Phil. and at the Ph.D. level in all major areas of English Studies i.e., Literature, Language, Culture Studies, Comparative Literature and Translation. The choice of research topic is dependent on availability of faculty and expertise. The Department Research Committee will help both M.Phil. and Ph.D. students to choose their topics and supervisors.
