In the English division, postgraduate programmes follow a modular approach, what is popularly known as ‘the cafeteria system’– students can choose from a variety of courses offered in different areas, such as literature, linguistics and English Language Education and opt for a programme that best suits their goals.
Courses offered on our various programmes adopt a variety of teaching styles that are intense and at the same time engaging. Courses are offered as seminars, tutorials, presentations, lectures, or lab-based held in language labs and digital labs.
The Foreign Languages division offer courses in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish from zero-level to PhD. The thrust areas covered in the postgraduate and research courses are language, literature, linguistics, methodology, culture and civilisation, and translation. The programmes are of two kinds: full time and part time. Details about the courses and academic schedules find a place in the respective sections in the prospectus. (p.nos.)
The School of Distance Education offers PG Certificate and Diploma in the teaching of English for the continuing education of teachers of English. Contact programmes are held at the end of the course. Self-instructional materials are provided for all the programmes. The School also offers a two-year MA English.
The scope of research output is vast and the implications global. Research students address the latest areas in the fields of language sciences, literature, language education, culture studies, media, translation, in English and Foreign languages.
