The M.A. in English at SNU is designed to combine rigor with creativity. It will take students through the significant moments in English literary history and world literature but it also incorporates courses in critical and cultural theory, translation, creative writing, and visual theory. Our pedagogy includes classroom lectures designed to gradually draw a student into the complexity of texts, and also more interactive, seminar-based formats possible only with small groups. Above all, our excellent student-teacher ratio has enabled us to put in place a rigorous, multi-tiered, and varied program of writing that will include compulsory courses in academic writing, good writing for the general public, writing narratives as well as an individually supervised M.A. research paper based on prescribed weekly readings. Most of these writing activities will be based on intensive one-to-one interactions between teacher and student. It is our intention to equip our M.A. students with the skills needed for a range of competitive examinations as well as for careers in publishing and the media. Most of all, however, we see potential academics in our best students and we are committed to supporting them through research careers in every possible way. Shiv Nadar University offers teaching assistantships and fee waivers which will bring down the cost of their education considerably.
Admission decisions will be solely based on performance in a written entrance exam.
A candidate should have an undergraduate degree in any discipline from the Humanities and Social Sciences from a recognized university or institution at the time of admission with a minimum of 55%. Candidates from disciplines other than the Humanities and Social Sciences must have a minimum of 70% in their undergraduate degree at the time of admission. Third-year B.A. Candidates are eligible to apply but their final admission is contingent upon fulfilling the admission criterion outlined above. Admissions will be offered on the basis of an entrance test conducted by the department of English, Shiv Nadar University.

Accreditation is a process by which the quality of a programme is examined and certified normally by an external body of academics. It validates and certifies that academic processes practised within an institute are robust and relevant.
For any programme to be recognized for further studies or a profession it needs to be approved either by a University or/and by a professional council as the case may be.
