Profile of the Programme:
The BA programme in English Language and Literature aims to furnish the successful students with skills relevant to such a double major. It concentrates on two core areas: (a) Linguistics, by offering a comprehensive study of language with some focus on teaching English as a foreign language and (b) English Literature, by covering the major authors and issues from 1580 to the present day and by offering a detailed study of all literary genres: poetry, drama, and prose.
The courses of the literature component are so designed to give the student good knowledge of the literary history of Anglophone literature and the cultural conditions under which it is written.
The courses of the linguistics component aim to provide the student with a thorough grounding of the principles underpinning the study of language, the diversity of linguistic study. The TEFL courses aim to provide students with the knowledge and skills relevant to teaching English with emphasis on classroom management and the use of technology.
The BA in English Language and Literature enables graduates to pursue careers in the following areas:
Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

The Media. The skills gained through the degree open up possibilities in many areas of the media and communications, including journalism, publishing, advertising, administration and PR.
