Bachelor of English (Honours)
A degree in English is a specialised language academic discipline focusing on the study of linguistic and literature components (especially essays, novels, short stories, and poetry) as well as media communication. Students will develop a deeper understanding of the different aspects of English language study, including the English linguistics and sociolinguistics, including discourse analysis of written and spoken texts in the English language, grammar, the history of the English language, English language learning and teaching as well as the study of variations of English in the world.
A degree in English now encompasses a much broader range of topics which stretch over multiple disciplines.
Graduates of this programme will also be equipped with critical thinking skills that will empower them to understand the ever-changing media and form of communication and to function effectively in any professional setting where they need to clearly and persuasively express their ideas in writing and verbal communication.
To that end, the programme places particular importance on three core imperative skills: 1) analysing literature, a process which requires logic and reflective analysis; 2) creativity and imagination with regards to the production of good writing; and 3) an understanding of different cultures, civilisations, and literary styles.
