Course Details

Bachelor of English (Hons) Majoring in English Literature

Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK)




  • Description

    A degree in English is a specialized language academic discipline focusing on the study of linguistic components and literature (especially essays, novels, short stories, and poetry) as well as media communication. Students will develop a deeper foundation in the mechanics of grammar and usage, as well as study and analyse a wide variety of writing styles. Other areas covered are English sociolinguistics, including discourse analysis of written and spoken texts in the English language, the history of the English language, English language learning, and teaching, and the study of variations of English in the world. A degree in English now encompasses a much broader range of topics which stretch over multiple disciplines. To that end, the programme places particular importance on three core imperative skills: analyzing literature, a process which requires logic and reflective analysis; creativity and imagination with regards to the production of good writing; and an understanding of different cultures, civilizations, and literary styles. Graduates of this programme will be equipped with critical thinking skills that will empower them to understand the ever-changing media and form of communication and to function effectively in any professional setting where they need to clearly and persuasively express their ideas in writing and verbal communication.
