The M.A. in English Language and Literature is designed to inspire students to appreciate first-hand, the varieties and shades of language and style and various kinds and trends of imaginative writing in Modern English Literature (1500 to the present day). Over the course of the programme, students will learn how to train their critical taste and judgment in such a way that they are able to respond sympathetically and imaginatively to diverse literary trends and movements. Concurrently, their ability to arrive at an impersonal and dispassionate evaluation of a given work of art and/or a given writer will be honed. They will gain the skills necessary to be aware of problems, limitations and strengths implicit in the appreciation of English language and literature, and learn how to write effectively and cogently while expressing themselves either in critical or in creative writing.
