English Language and Literature

Dear students,

English is ranked in the third place, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish, in terms of the number of people who speak the language. English continues to be a primary choice for communication in global business, international law, science and technology, media, and various international academic circles. This has profound consequences for those who wish to teach English in their native countries or abroad. The program involves research in the fields of linguistics, applied linguistics, second language acquisition, translation studies, sociolinguistics, language pedagogy and methodology, literacy development, curriculum and materials development, assessment, and cross-cultural communication.

Bachelor Studies in ELIT

After completing our program, students will understand the value of communication and representation in the context of English as a global language, and how language and culture determine a nation’s understanding and ability to represent its identity. Students will become more confident about their ability to use English in different contexts.

 

They will also be prepared to teach English as a foreign language in many settings or pursue academic research in the field of literature and related disciplines. What makes our program different and unique is the University’s approach to higher education, which is international and interdisciplinary, whereby students are provided with individual attention and academic guidance.
