The Department of English and Humanities (DEH) has a holistic vision attempting to impart an education to students which will combine language skills with literary sensibilities. That its graduates will become responsible, competent and wise human beings dedicated to the service of the nation is what DEH wants to achieve. It is one of the few departments where every undergraduate student of the University is taught for successive terms, usually within the student’s first two years at the University. The department tries to develop in students not only basic communication skills in the lingua franca of the world, but also in other key areas necessary both to intellectual and professional advancement: humanistic content, analysis, argumentation, rhetoric, stylistics and so on. These broad offerings to all students make the department one of the major nodal points in the University’s Liberal Arts curriculum.
