An Overview:

The courses offered by the Department of English for the degree of Bachelor of Arts in English have two Majors: Literature and Linguistics.
The program requires an extensive reading of texts of literature in English and a familiarity with the theoretical and critical approaches, which have shaped English studies in recent years. The program focuses on a study of literary periods, genres and theoretical issues, as well as a study of non-native literature in English and literatures in other languages. Language skills and techniques are part of the degree. Students are thus offered the possibility of working with texts from a number of different historical periods and geographical areas, and are given the tools to analyze them in a variety of ways.

For Linguistics concentration, the program emphasizes an extensive reading of English phonetics and phonology, English grammar, Morphology, Syntax, Applied Linguistics and Language Acquisition. These count as core courses in the Linguistics major.
Career Opportunities:

 Students preparing to enhance their teaching careers can select any concentration from Literature/Language/Applied Linguistics and ELT. The English Literature major is the ideal liberal arts major for students desiring to develop capabilities in research, writing, critical thinking, and textual analysis combined with the study of literature and language. And students preparing to teach English as a Second Language are advised to take linguistics major. For pre-professional and general liberal arts majors, linguistics contributes to analytical and research skills that enhance professional résumé. Applied Linguistics and ELT are for students who are pursuing Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (TESOL) endorsement concurrently with the MA in English.
