University of Lahore

HISTORY

Department of English Language and Literature constitutes a professional, yet congenial, environment for the teaching and promotion of both linguistics and literature in English. A variety of degrees ranging from BS to M.Phil are offered involving both these disciplines. The BS is a multidisciplinary degree in the study of English language and literature, (applied) linguistics, and communication.

With its qualified faculty, the Department is thoroughly committed to teaching and research in a vigorous atmosphere, while its programmes of study are characterized by a balanced combination of rigour and flexibility. We try to sustain a dynamic learning environment that encourages creative thinking abilities as well as linguistic and interpersonal skills. Extracurricular activities are part of our broader scheme, and are organized to provide the students opportunities for social interaction, entertainment, and development of their non-academic talent. Similarly, the classes are typically highly interactive, involving a good deal of student participation. We try to maintain the highest standards of academic excellence, and of professional and ethical conduct.

As a team, we make a vibrant academic community which is fully poised to expand its students’ linguistic and literary horizons. This is achieved through lectures, workshops, seminars and faculty-student interaction.

Similarly, we invite notable authors and scholars for their insightful lectures and readings.
