MA English

Program Introduction

The MA English program at 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 the students can build later on, in the field(s) of their own choice. 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 program extends up to 4 semesters over the period of two years and students have to take 6 courses each semester. Each course earns the student 3 credit hours which enables them to accumulate 72 credit hours in total. It is not obligatory for student to write a thesis at the end of their coursework.
