    Vision : Towards critically reading Self, Society and the Imagined.

    Mission : The Department of English aspires to promote an intellectual climate through artistic creation, critical mediation and innovative ideation in a culture of reciprocal transformation.


    Literature is an important cultural product of a society. And the study of English literature offers insights into the worldviews of different societies. The Department of English at Christ University concentrates on providing an overview of Literature from aesthetic, linguistic, socio-political and cultural contexts. The students of literature are encouraged to develop a unique subjective objectivity that helps them in self-exploration and self realization.

    The curriculum for both UG and PG programmes develops the rich talents of students, offers near industry environment and is contemporarily relevant, connecting to every aspect of society. Headed by Prof. John J Kennedy and ably supported by a dedicated fraternity of teachers the department continues to strive, explore and achieve.

    MA in English with Communication Studies

    Course Description
    The Masters programme in Literature and Communication Studies aspires to sustain and revive an academic interest in literary and cultural theories. The papers offered are as contemporarily relevant as possible, even eclectic. However, a conscious effort has been made to ensure that theories are grounded in textual readings, wherever possible. Testing and evaluation patterns aim at fostering a culture of research rather than an exam driven system, which will enhance student reading and creativity. In keeping with practical demands, ELT, communication study papers and the internship component are skill based and endeavor to make the programme application oriented.

    Objectives
    1)  The programme hopes to prepare students for the challenges of a teaching career through teaching assistantships that afford practical experience in lecture preparation, material production and testing practices.

    2)  In keeping with the growing interest in literature and media studies, most of the papers redefine ‘text’ by introducing non-conventional texts and areas of study.


    3) The internship aims at hands-on job experience as well as research avenues.


    4) Workshops, seminars and projects, apart from being the existing methodology of teaching will also ensure exposure to expert views and global trends in the areas of literary and cultural theories.
