English is an international language. In today’s global world, the importance of English cannot be denied and ignored since English is the most common language spoken everywhere. With the help of developing technology, English has been playing a major role in many sectors including education, engineering and medicine. English should be learnt in Bangladesh for the following three main reasons ﬁnding a high quality job, communicating with the international world and accessing scientiﬁc sources in the student’s major ﬁeld. Moreover, it allows us a better understanding of this present world.
Vision of the English Language and Literature Department
Keeping the founding Concept Paper of Gono Bishwabidyalay, a syllabus for a four-year B.A. (Hons.) programme in English has been designed with both the traditional objectives, viz., a familiarity with the main line of development by means of English Literature through ages, through a familiarity with the major ﬁgures down the centuries, and the current demands of the society, viz., supply of graduates who can ﬁll many positions of responsibility in and outside the government and the country. The aim is not to produce a narrow specialist, but a person who is aware of the historical (mainly European) background of his / her discipline, who can teach with competence at diﬀerent levels who is endowed with ethical/moral values, and who has gained a wider perception of literature per se from courses based on Bangla Literature as well, and ﬁnally one who has a good idea of the currently important gender issues and similar concerns of our time. The composite character of the syllabus reﬂects all these facets concerns, including the importance of the liberation war of Bangladesh.
The M.A. in English Programme (Concentration: Literature in English/Concentration: ELT) generally aims at providing students with exposure to the areas and aspects of literature in English and English language teaching which have not been covered in the undergraduate programme. It seeks to further reﬁne students’ sensibilities, sharpen their critical faculty and equip them with the knowledge and skills that will make them qualiﬁed and capable persons. More speciﬁcally, the programme is designed to create diverse professionals and well-equipped English language teachers.
