Overview

İstanbul Şehir University Department of English Language and Literature takes a student-oriented approach, aiming to provide students with critical skills to read, analyze, interpret, discuss and critically evaluate products of a literary and non-literary culture in English. We offer courses on wide-ranging subjects from Gothic literature, modernism and drama to postcolonial literature, postmodernism, adaptation, and contemporary women’s poetry, aiming to provide students with working knowledge on traditional as well as the latest research in the field. We promote an interdisciplinary approach to literature: our students are able to study literature in relation to various subjects of humanities such as political science, psychology, film studies, and sociology. This way, we enable them to specialize in fields in relation to their specific interests. We encourage them to consider texts in relation to historical and hence cultural contexts. By offering various courses on literary theory, we provide our students with tools to critically engage with cultural products.

English Language and Literature

İstanbul Şehir University Department of English Language and Literature takes a student-oriented approach, aiming to provide students with critical skills to read, analyze, interpret, discuss and critically evaluate products of a literary and non-literary culture in English. Our students study and discuss texts from Anglo-Saxon times to contemporary period with examples both canonical and outside the canon. We offer courses on wide-ranging subjects from Gothic literature, modernism and drama to postcolonial literature, postmodernism, adaptation, and contemporary women’s poetry, aiming to provide students with working knowledge on traditional as well as the latest research in the field.

Our courses are specifically designed to develop students’ research and writing skills. Through their discussions in classes, they are trained to negotiate ideas presented in primary and secondary sources. Our fundamental prospect is to give our students an independent and creative approach towards their subject materials, enabling them to use these techniques in their future research and writing.

Competent in literary, language, and cultural studies, equipped with fluent English and with interdisciplinary knowledge and skills, the graduates of our program can look forward to careers in cultural fields, more specifically in the academy, publishing, media, arts, education, and tourism.​
