M.A. in Applied English was introduced in 1998 under the aegis of Faculty of Education and Allied Sciences. The focus of the Department is on multi-dimensional development of students. Keeping the all round development of students in view, we adopt a cohesive, realistic, highly motivational teaching strategy to train and teach the students. Modern technology like Language laboratory and other audio- visual aids are regularly used to equip the students with linguistic competence. The syllabus has been designed as per UGC’s latest model curriculum with the purpose to provide exposure and sensitivity to students towards literature and to prepare them for employability in other sectors, along with conventional teaching job. The syllabus is also modified on time to time as per the requirements of job- market. Another special feature of the course is that along with all the papers of English literature, which are prescribed for M.A. English students, M.A. Applied English has incorporated some job-oriented, applied papers. The same augments the ability of students by nurturing their latent inherent talents and chiseling their linguistic skills. Technical papers like Phonetics and Spoken English, Scientific and Technical Writing (Research Methodology), Creative Writing and Translation etc. provide additional skill to students and address following purposes:
- To improve fluency and accuracy of students in English by encouraging constant interaction between students and teachers.
- To impart exposure regarding research procedure and to enable them to adopt practical approach while selecting topic for research and to familiarize them with research methodology.
- To acquaint the students with the theory and practice of translation : From Hindi to English and vice- versa.
- To focus on the personality development of students through regular Group Discussion, Seminar and personal interaction.
