Master of Arts (MA) in English

Master of Arts (MA) in English

This interdisciplinary course offer students insight into world literature, language, history, culture, sociology, international relations, psychology, environment and various other areas. Apart from the core courses, students can choose from a range of course including language, literature, rhetoric and humanities. While retaining the fundamental philosophy of humanities educationโ€”the cultivation of humanistic values and critical thinkingโ€”this syllabus aims at developing studentsโ€™ creative, critical, and communicative skills that they need in their academic and professional life. Focus on writing, intensive study of literary genres, emphasis on interpretive and cultural theories, and the incorporation of interdisciplinary and comparative study are some of the underlying features of the courses.
The syllabus reflects the current trends in English Studies that have radically expanded the scope of the discipline. Taking into account the curriculum models adopted in many universities across the world, it recognizes and draws upon multiple traditions, communities, and literatures. The syllabus, therefore, comprises of a productive mix of canonical and non-canonical texts, traditionally-recognized literary and semi-literary genres, and expressive artifacts from multiple cultural traditions. The goal is to enable students to read, interpret and critique texts in a wide range of modes, genres and media.ย
