Welcome to the Department of Literature and Languages at SRM University-AP. We’re happy to know that you want to find out more about us, and we hope that we’ll get a chance to meet you in person before too long. The Department offers a wide range of courses at the undergraduate level and encourages research scholars to explore different areas in Literary Studies, including English Language Teaching, English Literature, Disability Studies, Literary Theory, and Linguistics for a PhD.
At the undergraduate level, we offer a broad overview of the whole field of English literary studies as well as an introduction to topics like English grammar, applied language skills and socio-linguistics. Our undergraduate modules lead to the traditional major in English, which can be completed by students studying towards a BA (Regular Degree), BA Honours, and BA (Research): an additional 01 year with a focus on Research in addition to Honours. We deliver ‘English Studies’ not as a subject but as a ‘Skill’ at SRM University-AP. It’s a well-kept secret that there is a huge demand for English specialists in fields as different as advertising, business, diplomacy, editing, the civil service, public relations, tourism, publishing, teaching, and the media.
When it comes to research at the doctoral level, the Department prides itself on being research active and on encouraging students to pursue their individual passions under the guidance of supervisors who share them. So, we welcome you to visit us and spend some time discussing your interests, experiences, expectations, and career prospects.
Wishing you all the best,
Dr Srabani Basu
Head, Department of English
