Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature

General

Program Description

Our international campus environment coupled with our academic excellence has placed us in a unique position in the region.

Our comprehensive program is aided by the fact that A.U.S. is a truly international and diverse campus community where English is as prevalent outside the classroom as it is within it. This places our graduates at a definite advantage, making them good communicators, qualified for employment in the UAE and throughout the world.

Our program focuses on language, grammar, writing and the diverse genres of literary arts such as fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and prose. We help students learn the research tools and analytical skills necessary to succeed in a variety of professions in today's English-dominated and information-oriented global environment. Our graduates' ability to effectively communicate in English and utilize critical thinking skills are qualities highly valued by a wide range of employers, which include:

  • schools, colleges, and universities
  • businesses and industries
  • consulates and embassies
  • governmental organizations
  • marketing companies
  • media - television, radio, newspapers, magazines
  • publishers

In addition to our BA, we offer a Minor in Language and a Minor in Literature, which gives our students a distinct advantage as they enter their chosen professions.
