MA English

Program Introduction

The MA English program at Department of English Language and Literature (DELL) derives its uniqueness from being a merger of three distinct but related fields which are literature, linguistics and English Language Teaching (ELT). The focus remains on literature; however, the ultimate goal is to lay down a solid foundation on which students can build later on, in the fields of their own choice.

The School of Social Sciences and Humanities at UMT is offering a two-year MA English degree program. The program is designed to allow the students to go through comprehensive and rigorous coursework simultaneously in literature and linguistics. The students can also acquaint themselves with the basic theories and practices of ELT, by taking a couple of introductory courses in this field. Hence, the literary, scientific, theoretical and pedagogical skills of the student are sharpened at the same time.

The MA English program helps participants by contributing to the career development and progression by introducing them to eclectic approach of teaching language and designing the curriculum, lesson plans and classroom activities, etc. Additionally, the program helps graduates to develop an understanding and research the problems related to English language teaching through both theoretical and practical perspectives. The degree helps graduates with the prospect to acquire professional knowledge to prepare them for wide-ranging future careers such as English language teacher, editor, journalist, etc.
