As the Yaşar University Department of English Language and Literature, we are proud to play a role in the education and development of a new generation of young critical thinkers.
We aim to equip our students with the analytic and linguistic skills that will not only open up a wide range of employment possibilities for our graduates but also enable them to play an active and critical role in society.
Our students receive extensive instruction in English grammar, speaking skills and academic writing. Moreover, since they spend four years immersed in oral and written discussion and debate in English, they gain advanced proficiency in the use of language in an applied setting. The increasingly globalized nature of modern society demands experts who are not only competent in other languages but also literate in other cultures. Alongside the literature of the British Isles, students in the department have the opportunity to study other Anglophone cultures and to think critically about questions of cultural domination and autonomy in the context of the history of empire and decolonization. The culture and literature of the United States, the question of gender and literature and the connections between literary and visual culture are among fields that our students will have an opportunity to explore....
