The MA programme in English Language and Literature is created to provide students with a well-rounded education that is the ideal balance of theory and practice. The Program seeks to give students a solid foundation in all recognized English literary canons that fall under the curriculum’s jurisdiction. It adheres to the choice-based credit system that the university regulations, which are based on the requirements of the UGC Regulations, have envisioned. Over the course of four semesters, the programme offers a mix of Core and Elective courses. Both core and elective courses offer credit opportunities for the students. Indian Writing in English, New Literatures, Introduction to Literary Criticism, Shakespeare Studies, History of English Literature, Indian Aesthetics, and other topics are covered in the core courses.
Numerous specialized topics are covered in the elective courses, including Translation Studies, Language and Media, Canadian Literature, Travel Writing, European Fiction, Comparative Literature, Indian Women Novelists, etc. In their final semester, students work on a project of their choosing, choosing a subject of interest and learning the fundamentals of performing academic research. Finally, they turn in a project report and publish a paper based on their investigation. As a result of the program’s increased analytical capacity, research thinking, and inquiry, students become engaged readers and writers who love literature and humanity and are able to communicate successfully in both academic and professional settings.
