CHAIR'S MESSAGE

Dr. Shahbaz Arif

Head of Department


Welcome to the Department of English Language and Literature at The University of Lahore.

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. Our instructors motivate the students to tailor their individual understanding of language and literature, and facilitate them in responding to their academic and pre-professional needs. Similarly, we invite notable authors and scholars for their insightful lectures and readings.

We boast that our students, upon graduation, leave us having extensive theoretical knowledge about English language and literature. As for our research-based programs, these are designed to equip our students with skills in independent inquiry, critical thinking, valuable interlocution, originality – all that is needed for conducting a valuable academic research in postgraduate studies. We also boast our state-of-the-art facilities which include a well-stocked university library, as well as fully equipped computer labs, online research databases, as well as printing and scanning facilities.

I am looking forward to seeing you at Department of English Language and Literature and wish all our students and graduates continued growth and success in their educational and professional endeavors.

We take personal
responsibility for our role
as leaders in the pursuit of
excellence.
