Master of Arts (MA) in English is a full-time two-year postgraduate course and it is offered by the Nagaland University, Lumami. English is the world's leading lingua franca, the main vehicle of communication, an indispensable tool of the international economy, diplomacy, sciences, and global media. The language represents the cross-cultural global contextualization in multiple voices. Its study is essentially a selected dimension of theoretical, ideological, applied and pedagogical constructs related to the unprecedented spread of English in the world contexts. The transplanted English in new linguistic, cultural and social milieus entails teaching and learning English in the multilingual situation with genetically and culturally language contexts. The discipline offers a wide, comprehensive and carefully planned syllabi to understand, critically appreciate and assess the history, genres of literature down the ages, ranging from poetry, drama, essays, fiction, criticism, efficiency in linguistics and phonetics, journalistic writing and to effective communication skills. The literature presents a picture of life, a precise account of variousness, possibility and concrete dramatization of “lived” meanings. It's charged with power to the utmost degree, enlivens the reader with pleasure, a graceful ornament of civil liberty and has the art of saying something that will be read twice.
