The aim of the Master’s Degree Programme in English (MEG) is to give learners a sound basis in language as well as a deep understanding of Literatures such as American, British, Indian English Literature, and New Literatures, such as, Canadian, and Australian, with the option to specialise in a particular area of interest. The learners are also expected to develop confidence in their critical and analytical abilities.

This 64-credit programme has a two-tier structure: two compulsory core courses over a period of two years and two optional modules. Each course is worth 8 credits.

MEG-05 is offered in the first year as a compulsory course, while learners need to opt for either MEG-4 or MEG 15 as a compulsory course in the second year. Two compulsory courses and two modules of 24 credits each to be chosen as per the learner’s area of interest.

Learners will develop an understanding of English and other literatures of their choice in their proper historio-critical prospective. A good knowledge of reading, comprehension, and writing skills would be prerequisite for this Programme. There are four modules available in particular areas of specialization. Those wishing to specialize in any area can take all three courses from the particular module along with MEG -05 (Literary Theory and Criticism) 4X8= 32 credits and earn a PG Diploma in that particular area of study.

Learners who may wish to exist from the Master’s Programme after the first year would still get a PG Diploma in the specific area after having completed a specific module of their choice along with MEG 05. Alternatively, once you have completed the PG Diploma in a particular area, you may wish to take admission in 2nd Year of the MA English Programme. The MEG Programme is designed to be modular to also offer specialization in an area and to facilitate the ease of entry and exit for learners should the need arise.
