English Language and Literature
"A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say."
― Italo Calvino
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.
