Transcending the historic separation between the study of language and the study of literature, which has led to the limited role of the either, this program ensures an efficient synergy between linguistics and literature. This integrated approach is based on the premise that literature is language and language can indeed be literary. So the focus is on introducing students to seminal works in the disciplines of literature and linguistics. The programme moves beyond the traditional disciplinary segregation within English Studies and seeks to interface Literature and Linguistics, thus offering an uncompartmentalised approach to the subjects studied.
Scheme of Studies:
The students will study 22 courses in four semesters over a period of 2 years. Each course is of 3 credit hours. Total 72 CH: 66 CH in taught courses and 06 CH in thesis.
