MA in English With Communication Studies


 

PROGRAMME 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.
