The Bachelor of Arts in English aims to provide grounding in English literature and language by engaging students in a diverse range of literature covering different literary movements and forms. Core literature modules of the programme will expand knowledge and understanding of cultural, historical and regional evolutions of literatures in English.
The programme will expose students to theoretical frameworks and critical interpretations of the ways in which different cultural and historical contexts inform the reading and writing of literature. Through this exposure, students will develop skills to use theories and methods to approach texts, including those that focus on gender, race, and the transnational, besides stimulating an appreciation of genre, literary forms and conventions. Further, this applied understanding can be put to use in academic, creative and professional contexts.
With regard to the language aspects, the programme aims to provide a broad understanding of the history, evolution, and nature of the English language. It will also examine how the English Language can vary and change according to context, identity and social interaction. Through the language modules, students will develop an appreciation of the structure and functions of the English language.
The programme is also designed to enable students to combine knowledge, language skills, and other competencies such as creativity, team work and organizational skills required to excel within the discipline.
