OPENING DOORWAYS TO THE WORLD

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 such as teaching, civil services, media , public relations. Independent literary critics and copywriters. The main objective of the School is to train the students  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.

One can expect the course to initially focus on some of the finer points of the spoken language, such as syntax, lexis, grammar, tenses and other such things. Later onstudents go on to explore the historical and social context of the language, such as learning how and why certain phrases or linguistic eccentricities have become common, and how and why some became obsolete and rarely used.

Some courses analyse the use of various elements of the language with social theory, focusing on things such as the relationship between language and gender, class, or race.Teaching at the School 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. As a part of the curriculum , every student of BA(Hons.) English and MA(English) programmes is required to write a research dissertation , which gives them a platform to develop in them research acumen.

Since French language is taught as a compulsory subject to BA(Hons) students , some of them get enthused to make a career in French teaching by doing advanced courses.
