The School of Languages, Literature and Society was set up in 2008. The programmes of the school are designed to provide knowledge and competence in the fields of literature, language, culture and society for a wide range of professions in such sectors as teaching, civil services, media or public relations. The main objective of the School is to offer training in theories and methods of literary/critical thinking as well as their application in practical contexts. By focusing on specific genres and texts, we encourage students to engage in critical practices that make them aware of the effects of social, political, cultural, historical and ideological formulations. The School also prepares and trains the students to avail the opportunities in the spheres that need language competence. The teaching is supplemented with seminar presentations, projects and guest lectures by subject experts/specialists. The students are provided opportunities to attend literary fests / cultural events to enhance their literary / artistic sensibilities and enhance their skills in literary appreciation.
