As English has become an International Language and especially the need of the hour to survive, it introduces the students to use of it in their routine life in general and also makes them aware about the prominent literary figures of all over the world and their literary canons. By reading literature, the students get acknowledgement of their social, political, economic, cultural life as literature is the criticism of life. Even the courses also improve the communication skills of the students which can further make them enable to get success in their personal as well as professional life.
With these considerations in mind, we have made exposure to both the broad sweep and variety, and the focused engagement with specific topics. All the information is provided through the Lecture Theory, Power Point Presentations, Literature Based Drama.
By engaging them in critical readings of primary texts, both in discussions and in written assignments, we push even students in our introductory classes to develop their research skills. All our courses, in particular, require student engagement with sources and significant writing. These skills are further expanded in our upper-level classes. Our seminar courses, in particular, offer students the further opportunities to polish their ability for both written and verbal argument, and to produce more sophisticated analytical papers.
