Program :: BA (Hons) in English 

Bachelor of Arts in English

At the undergraduate level, the Department of English of World University of Bangladesh (WUB) offers a four-year BA (Hons) program in English. The program is designed to equip students with the ability to use English language for scholarly and practical purposes. It makes a balanced combination of literature studies and applied linguistics. Different ways of looking at literature, literary history, language and culture are fostered by the department.

However, education is not the only goal of the English major, but also the starting point for a lifetime of engagement in professions that need educated employees. Extensive writing skill is required in all English courses, with the expectation that English majors will learn to turn research and critical thinking into cogent arguments expressed in a clear and interesting style. To complete the BA in English at WUB, a student must successfully complete at least 127 credits by 12 semesters. After completion of 121 credits students will need to write a thesis of 6 credits or opt for doing two additional courses. Our distinguished faculty is always ready to support students with the greatest assistance.
