M.A in English

Programme Overview

Bachelor of Arts in English is a four-year degree programme with the possibility of completing the fourth year with research if a particular student secures 75% CGPA in the previous exams.

Programme Objectives & Outcomes

The Masters in English program, Salesian College Siliguri Campus is geared towards facilitating a finer critical and analytical temper amongst students pursuing the degree. Affiliated to the Department of English, NBU, the MA program is mandated to follow the syllabus and assessment pattern set down by the university. However within this it tries to chart its own unique teaching and learning methodology made possible through close student-teacher ratio, research facilities, and exposure via national and international workshops, seminars and conferences. The department is committed to helping its students in learning the rudiments of research, critical thinking and developing strong analytical skills by incorporating a variety of critical reading, writing and learning strategies. An emphasis on postcolonial studies and marginalized literatures marks the program vision beyond the curriculum. It also seeks to make the study of literature more interdisciplinary by opening up space both literally, the classroom and metaphorically the ‘text’ to other disciplines. Students are encouraged to present and discuss their viewpoints in class. Special lectures are held on term paper writing focusing on MLA stylesheet, effective writing techniques and ethics. The department also follows a mentoring system and counsels students towards future career options in research, teaching, journalism, copy-editing etc.
