The program offers a comprehensive study of British literature, and opens up opportunities as it includes job-oriented courses like Journalism, English Language Teaching, Creative Writing, Film Studies and Translation Studies as electives. It will give the learners an impeccable command of the English language. Its unique feature is that it offers a course in spiritual literature with the objective to help the students develop a healthy, noble vision of life. We have been offering courses to the three schools - ASE, ASA and ASBT. Several courses are being offered on communication skills including Communicative English, Professional and Technical Writing, Business Correspondence, Insights into Life through English Literature. A high-point of our Integrated M.A. Programme is the research project that encourages individual initiative and self-study on the part of the students. An M.A programme in English Language and Literature was started in 2015. Emerging areas of study with an array of specialized electives make for an M.A. programme that is a mix of the conventional and the new.
The Department of English, since its formation, has been focusing on promoting the communication skills of students entering the portals of technical education as well as higher education in Amritapuri Campus. The students are put through training in English for Professional Communication and Business Correspondence during their first semester. The objectives of teaching English have undergone continuous changes in the last two decades. Language is now increasingly being recognized as more psychology than reason, more culture than intellect and more usage than grammar.
